The Daily Mail reported:
A refugee from Ghana has been arrested for dragging a young woman from her tent and raping her while she was on a camping holiday with her boyfriend.
The young couple were on a camping trip in the Siegaue Nature Reserve, north of the former German capital of Bonn, when they were approached by a machete-wielding man at about 12.30am on Sunday last week.
The boyfriend was forced to watch as the attacker violated his 23-year-old lover.
The boyfriend, 26, who had also been threatened by the man, contacted police and medical responders took her to hospital.
A photofit picture of the attacker led to his arrest on Saturday and DNA testing confirmed his guilt, according to police.
He tried to flee when police moved in to arrest him, flinging a rucksack at one officer.
