An Iraqi man suspected of having raped a 13-year-old girl in Hamburg, Germany in November 2016, has been caught and held by Hungarian police, Hungary’s National Police Headquarters (ORFK) said on Tuesday.

“The German police sent a request to the Hungarian authorities in January to help identify an Iraqi suspect and its location,” the ORFK said in a statement released on its official website.

German authorities have issued a European and an International warrant on the suspect.

Following an exchange of information, the Hungarian investigators concluded that the suspect used an alias in Germany, but his pictures and fingerprints matched those of a man called C. Ali D, registered in Hungary on Nov. 18, 2016.

After having committed the crime, the man took a train to Hungary on Nov. 17, 2016, the ORFK added. ( As his identity and conditions were unclear, Hungary’s Immigration and Asylum Office ordered him to be put into custody in Kiskunhalas, a city in southern Hungary, where he was arrested by police on Feb. 17.

His extradition to Germany will be decided later, ORFK said. Enditem
