Migrant charged with raping a woman at Denmark’s largest asylum centre

COPENHAGEN – North Zealand Police believe that a woman was raped at Center Sandholm, an asylum centre in northern Zealand, just after midnight on Wednesday.

According to Ritzau, the Danish Red Cross, which operates the centre, reported the rape to police.
A 24-year-old man was arrested and will make a preliminary court appearance in Hillerød later on Wednesday.
In September 2015, a stateless Palestinian who was due to be expelled from Denmark was arrested for trying to kill a Danish police officer in a stabbing attack at Center Sandholm, which is the nation’s largest institution for asylum seekers.
Detective Kent Romer said the rape “happened somewhere inside Sandholm” but did not say whether or not the suspect and the victim were known to one another.

Center Sandholm is home to over 500 people from 49 different countries.

Last month Denmark’s immigration ministry extended random identity checks along its border with Germany until March 4 to dissuade the arrival of more migrants.

The news came in the wake of the spate of sex attacks which swept the German city of Cologne on New Year’s Eve when hundreds of women were assaulted by men described as being of Arabic or North African appearance.
