Iraqi asylum seeker Ali Bashar, who allegedly raped and murdered 14-year-old German-Jewish teen Susanna Maria Feldman, has also been accused of the multiple rapes of an 11-year-old girl.
Bashar, 21, along with a 14-year-old Afghan migrant named Mansoor, is said to have brutally raped an 11-year-old girl several times since March, German tabloid Bild reports.
According to police sources, Bashar allegedly first raped the 11-year-old in March. She is said to have been raped by Mansoor in April, and then in May the pair, and possibly Bashar’s 13-year-old brother, raped her once more. Police were tipped off after the victim came forward.
Following the claims, 21-year-old Mansoor was placed into police custody, but the 13-year-old brother could not be charged because he is in the Middle East.
The Afghan had already become known to police because he helped them find the body of 14-year-old Susanna Feldman after Ali Bashar had fled the country back to his native Iraq, where he was later captured outside of Erbil by Kurdish forces and returned to Germany.
During his arrest in Iraq, Bashar allegedly confessed to the murder of the young girl but denied allegations that he raped her before killing her.
Bashar was arrested Friday in his hometown of Zakho by the Zerevani, an elite police force in Iraqi Kurdistan under the command of the Peshmerga forces.
Over the weekend, Bashar was flown from Erbil to Frankfurt after being handed over to German Federal police who accompanied him on the flight back to Germany.
