[2/8/17] An asylum seeker has been detained after he allegedly launched a string of sex attacks on 18 women during a single two-hour train journey.
The 23-year-old migrant is suspected of groping the women on a suburban S-Bahn German train line between Munich and Herrsching on January 29.
The Eritrean-born attacker is said to have gone from one carriage to the next touching female passengers.
The sickening spree was exposed after two victims reported their ordeal to the police.
One 18-year-old victim told police he stroked her face and tried to force his hand between her thighs before she fled.
Another woman, aged 20, also told how he touched her legs until she ran to another compartment.
But when police viewed security CCTV from the train they realised that there had been 16 other sex attack victims on the train who had not come forward.
