A migrant was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison for accepting a German woman’s generous offer of private housing, and then sexually abusing her while she slept.

The migrant, from Afghanistan, arrived in Germany and used the website “Refugees Welcome” to find housing provided by German volunteers, Kölnische Rundschau reports. The website Refugees Welcome works by connecting refugees with volunteers willing to provide private accommodation.

“Refugees are able to live in sound accommodation, learn the language faster, and adjust to a new environment more easily,” the site explains. “You, on the other hand, will get to know a different culture and help a person in a difficult situation.”

One woman in Cologne stepped up and offered her home, but that arrangement came to an abrupt end on October 25, when the Afghan migrant crept into the room of the woman and sexually abused her while she slept. The back story to the assault is that just hours before, the migrant made an advance on her, which she immediately and “unequivocally” spurned.

While he was holding her down, the woman woke up and start screaming and fought back against her attacker. She was able to push him off and run to her brother’s bedroom. Luckily, her brother lived in the same apartment.

The court found this incident particularly noxious because the migrant had taken advantage of the woman’s charity.

This isn’t the first time events and charity under the banner of “Refugees Welcome” has ended badly. On November 7, at a welcoming event in Bonn, several refugees molested and groped women, much to the chagrin of the organizers, who tried to identify the refugees and kick them out. But they failed to contain the behavior.

“This misbehavior does not, however, reflect the attitude of the vast majority of the refugees,” Refugees Welcome Bonn insisted on their website.

Cologne in particular has previously come into the international spotlight for rampant sexual assault on New Year’s Eve, which both the government and media tried to cover-up.
