A German woman was lured into a park in the St. Georg neighborhood of Hamburg Saturday, where she was assaulted and robbed by a gang of African migrants.

The 28-year-old nurse was returning home when she heard cries of help coming from the Lohmühlenpark. The would-be Good Samaritan ran to the park in order to help what she thought was someone in distress, only to be set upon by five men. The woman lost consciousness during the attack and awoke to find her belongings missing and her clothes torn off her body.

As of Monday, Jan. 9 — not ten days into the new year — there have been at least 35 rapes or sexual assaults reported in Germany and Austria. That is a rate of roughly 3.7 per day.

“There were indications of a sexual offense … LKA 42 [sex crimes unit] took over the further investigations,” Hamburg police said in a statement.

The horrific incident appears to be the 24th rape or sexual assault committed so far by migrants, or suspects fitting the description of migrants, in Germany in 2017. There were at least 19 rapes or sexual assaults committed by migrants on New Year’s Day alone, police reports indicate.

A 46-year-old German woman was raped by a Pakistani migrant in Regensburg, Germany during the early hours of New Year’s Day. In Garmisch-Partenkirchenin, a 24-year old woman was molested at a train station by a man she described as having “dark skin.” In Trier, a 19-year old was also molested by a migrant on her way home from New Year’s Eve celebrations.

In Flensburg, a 17-year old girl was sexually assaulted by a man described as having a “North African” appearance. In Glücksburg on New Year’s Day, a 30-year-old woman was sexually assaulted by a migrant in the Schinderdam neighborhood. In Frankfurt, a 25-year-old woman was sexually assaulted by a migrant on the Ester Steg (Iron Bridge). In Ulm, a 25-year old woman was assaulted by an African immigrant.

In Freiburg on New Year’s Day, a 24-year-old woman was sexually assaulted on Kaiser-Joseph-Straße by a man described as having a “North African-Arabian appearance.” In the city of Wiesbaden, a 34-year-old woman was sexually assaulted by her taxi driver, described as having “black, short, slightly curly hair, and … a foreign appearance.” Ten men were arrested for sexual assault during the early hours of New Year’s Day in Hamburg alone.

On Jan. 2, a 29-year old woman in Taunusstein, Germany, was molested by a group of three men described as having a “southern appearance” — a frequently used description in Germany for people of Arab or North African descent. The woman was surrounded in a parking lot where the men grabbed her by the arm and neck. She was saved when her attackers fled as another, uninvolved individual approached the commotion.

On Jan. 4, a 14-year-old girl was molested on a train from Oberhausen to Rees-Empel by someone described as having a foreign appearance. Also on Jan. 4, a 27-year old Pakistani man in Brannenburg was arrested for the sexual abuse of a 13-year-old girl.

On Sunday morning — Jan. 8 — in Kleve, Germany, a Syrian migrant tried to rape a 23-year-old woman. The victim, who was returning home from a party, had alerted her father that she was being followed. The would-be Syrian rapist was lying on top of the victim when her father arrived at the location and saved her.

Austria, Germany's neighbor, isn't faring much better — with at least 11 rapes or sexual assaults reported so far this year. An Afghan migrant was arrested on New Year's Day for sexually assaulting a Spanish woman. In Innsbruck, Austria, six women reported being sexually assaulted by men of a southern appearance during the early hours of New Year's Day. Salzburg police recorded three sexual assaults on New Year's Day.

On Jan. 2, a 31-year-old German woman was molested in Salzburg by an Afghan migrant. And on Sunday, Jan. 8, a 62-year-old woman in Innsbruck was surrounded by a group of Moroccans, one of whom chanted "I f*** you" and called the woman a "b***" and "whore."

As of Monday, Jan. 9 — not ten days into the new year — there have been at least 35 rapes or sexual assaults reported in Germany and Austria. That is a rate of roughly 3.7 per day.
