Balázs K. attacked and sexually abused four women in Zugló, which is one of the capital’s districts, between December 2016 and April 2017.
Szeretlek Magyarország reported that the 30-year-old man was driving on the streets of Zugló looking for women who had been alone, mostly getting off from buses during the night. Once he chose his victim, he got out from the car naked, covered his face with a scarf, rushed towards the women and pushed them on the ground.
Balázs K. also abused some women physically. One of the victims suffered severe injuries; many of her facial bones broke.
Fortunately, some women managed to escape in time, shouting loudly or protecting themselves with any method they could. One case was even witnessed by a local resident who managed to stop the attacker and helped the woman.
The police caught the attacker one day after his last attack. The judge sentenced him to eight years in prison, but the case has not been closed yet.
