A migrant abducted a four-year-old boy at an Austrian swimming pool just so he could molest his mother when she came to look for him in the latest terrifying sex attack.
The man, who barely spoke German had attempted to chat to the 37-year-old woman who was at the pool in the town of Klagenfurt with her young son.
When she rejected his advances, the asylum seeker went into the children's play pool, where her son was and grabbed the boy.
He then ran off with him into a grotto behind a fake waterfall within the swimming complex.
The boy's panicked mother then ran after him and found the pair hiding in the corner.
But when the mother arrived, the man put the child aside and instead grabbed her and groped her inside her swimming costume.
The woman managed to fight him off and escaped from the pool with her son and the migrant left shortly afterwards.
Police spokesman Markus Dexl said: 'The attacker was around 50 years old and almost certainly a foreigner, who attempted to speak to her.
'Because she didn't understand him, he had indicated that she should come nearer to him which she did not do.'
Mr. Dexl said that the little boy had been splashing in the water in the nearby children's paddling pool and the man then picked him up and put him on his shoulders.
The spokesman added that he then took the child to the water grotto, which is a dark covered area in the main swimming pool.'
He said the man is described as dark-skinned, six foot one inches tall, powerfully built with short curly hair, brown eyes and a mustache.
Meanwhile Austrian police also confirmed today that a seven-year-old girl was threatened by an asylum seeker from Afghanistan.
The man had approached the girl in the indoor swimming pool in the Penzing area of the Austrian capital Vienna, and had been spotted by outraged guests pointing at his crotch and indicating what he wanted her to do.
Austrian police spokesman Roman Hahslinger confirmed that the man had been arrested before the had been any physical contact.
He had been spotted by outraged swimmers who raised the alarm and the man has been released on bail while the investigation continues.
The incident comes just days after a swimming pool in Germany said it was being forced to segregate men and women after two sex attacks by migrants took place.
