An Afghan migrant has been arrested by police after allegedly sexually assaulting a six-year-old boy in a changing room at a sports hall.
The youngster was with his father and younger brother at a wrestling event at the sports hall in Munich.
The father said he noticed at the time that his son was taking a long time to get changed, and that evening the boy told his parents what had reportedly happened.
He told his parents that the man followed him into the cabin, pulled down his trousers and interfered with him.
Police arrested a 20-year-old refugee from Afghanistan in connection with the attack.
He remains in custody.
Munich Police said in a statement the migrant later confessed to the sex attack.
The assault is the latest in a wave of sex attacks involving migrants in Germany and Austria.
Tensions have escalated in Germany following the Cologne New Year’s Eve sex attacks in which up to 130 women were robbed and sexually assaulted by gangs of men, believed to be migrants.
Migrants have been accused of abducting and raping children at swimming pools across Germany.
In Austria police arrested a 35-year-old Algerian man after he attacked a woman at a bus stop.
Officers are also investigating claims an Afghan migrant raped a 13-year-old girl in Hollabrunn, Austria.
