One of the three teenage asylum seekers accused of the brutal rape of a young student has been floored in jail after attacking a female warden who was a martial arts expert.
The 16-year-old asylum seeker had attacked the female prison warden but chose the wrong target because she was an experienced martial arts expert and swiftly put the aggressive young man out of action.
He was then carried back to his cell by her colleagues.
The teenager is one of three who accused of the brutal sex attack in a public toilet in Vienna's Praterstern station.
The trio were arrested after they had followed a 21-year-old student into the women's toilets, and then used a coin to open the door lock while she was inside. They are accused of then pinning her down and raping her.
After she raised the alarm immediately following the incident, 100 police officers were drafted in and the trio were arrested not far from the station.
All three initially denied involvement, but have since all admitted to taking part. They were also positively identified by the victim.
Police believe however they had lied to their carers to get an excuse to travel to Vienna together and suspect the attack may have been planned.
Prison officials have refused to discuss the details of the attack on the female prison warden, including the motivation for the attack, but would only confirm that she had managed to beat the teenager off and pin him to the floor.
They also confirmed that the teenager was facing charges over that attack, and has also been moved to a more secure jail.
