Three teenagers from Afghanistan, who were looking to be granted asylum in Austria, raped a woman in a train station toilet, according to police.

According to the Vienna police, one of the three 16-year-old asylum seekers confessed to raping the 21-year-old college student at the Praterstern station.

All three teens were charged with one count of rape. They were booked into the Josefstadt prison, and they were denied bail.

According to the police investigation, the incident unfolded around 1:00 a.m. on Friday. The student was on her way home after a night out with her friend.

She stopped to use the public bathroom, but was followed inside by the three teenagers. They slammed her head against the toilet sink, and took chances raping her.

They covered her mouth to stop her from screaming. When the victim’s friend went into the toilet to check on her, she was lying unconscious on the floor.

By the time police arrived, the three suspects were gone. The three teens were arrested a short time later. They were all identified during a line up.

At first, they denied the allegations, but one of them later admitted to the rape.

In court, two of the teens were sentenced to serve six years in prison while the third teens will serve just five years behind bars.
