An internal police report in Germany shows sexual assaults against children in public swimming pools are exploding, and the culprits are often refugees.

Obtained by Bild, a German newspaper, the document notes that “offences of rape and sexual abuse of children in bathing establishments is significant” and adds “the perpetrators are for the most part immigrants.” Exact figures of the increase are still unknown.

Unfortunately, because of the chaotic nature of public pools and the fact that many of the victims are children, police are having a difficult time identifying the perpetrators and bringing them to justice.

Refugees have a difficult time navigating the various pools across Germany, as many of them have no clue how to swim or conduct themselves properly. Berthold Schmitt, who runs 6,000 of these pools, said these migrants have three main problems. First, they don’t speak German. Second, they’re unaware of German bathing culture. And third, they don’t really know how to swim. The report notes that about 20 migrants have drowned in 2016 so far.

This same trend isn’t restricted to Germany. Earlier this year in Austria, an Iraqi migrant raped a 10-year-old boy, who later had to be hospitalized as a result. In response, the migrant excused his own behavior by saying it was a “sexual emergency,” as he hadn’t had sex in 6 months.

“I couldn’t stand not having sex as I have excess sexual energy,” the Iraqi migrant told police.

Still, despite all the sexual assaults, leftist groups pushed a pool in Bornheim, Germany not to close its doors to migrants. The pool complied after the North Rhine-Westphalia Refugee Council director raised concerns about the rule constituting discrimination.
