An Afghan man suspected of raping a woman in Budapest earlier this year has been handed over to Hungarian investigators by the Austrian police, the Budapest police (BRFK) said on Friday.
The 18-year-old Afghan is suspected of having sexually assaulted a woman in the toilets of a fast-food restaurant in central Budapest on September 9, the BRFK said in a statement.
He was granted asylum in Hungary and has resided in the country since last year.
The suspect was detained on a train to Frankfurt in the area of Linz on September 10 by Austrian police officers.
He had also been wanted for two incidents of indecent exposure in the summer.
Hungarian police on Friday arrested the suspect and initiated his preliminary detention.
