The 20-year-old had previously stormed the apartment of an 18-year-old in Leopoldstadt. After the 18-year-old climbed out of the window in fear of the man and saved herself on a ledge, the police were alerted. The Austrian then attacked the officials. The police officers arrested him and issued an entry ban, according to the police.
According to the Vienna State Police Headquarters, the 20-year-old has been persistently seeking contact with the 18-year-old for around two years. Although she repeatedly stated that she did not want any contact, the Austrian wrote to her on social media. On Wednesday, the young woman streamed her way home via a live story on Instagram. At home the doorbell rang. When the victim opened the door, the stalker forced his way into the apartment, police said. There he asked her to have sex and threatened her that she could only leave the apartment if she complied with his demands.
When the 18-year-old stood on the ledge after fleeing, passers-by and neighbors noticed her. A neighbor then kicked in the door of the apartment and tried to calm the man down. When the police arrived with patrol officers and the standby unit, the situation escalated. The 20-year-old attacked the officers with punches and kicks, he grabbed a policewoman by the neck and choked her. The police had to use pepper spray to arrest him. The 18-year-old was unharmed.
