U6 rapist threatened to commit suicide

A man suspected of being a rapist that attacked close to a dozen women has broken down in tears after he ended up in jail and is now on suicide watch.

Over the period of one year the accused, named only as Mustafa A., kept following women from the underground line U6 in Vienna. He took their money and phones and then raped his victims.

The women were able to identify him with the help of the U6 surveillance cameras.

After the police had published the photo taken from the suspect, the 28-year-old took the train to Turkey, but got caught at the Hungarian-Romanian border.

The offender did not seem remorseful at all when he arrived back in Austria. However, he did seem very upset at learning hew as to be remanded in custody. He is suspected of being guilty in eight cases but he could have committed five more crimes in connection with alleged rape.

After two days of custody in the prison of Josefstadt (Vienna) the suspect threatened to hang himself. He was thus transferred to the psychiatry at Baumgartner Höhe.

He has been treated in the heavily guarded Pavillon 23 for three weeks. Only prisoners on remand, who have severely fallen ill, get this treatment.

Today, Thursday, the 28-year-old offender however was taken back to his cell in the prison of Josefstadt. The date for his trial has not been fixed yet.
