On the same day, a 16-year-old was arrested at a skating site on Danube Island, while a third alleged offender, 23, was caught several days later. 

According to a spokesperson from the public prosecutor’s office, the fourth suspect who was reportedly aged 22, ran away and was searched for with an international arrest warrant issued by the Criminal Police Office of Austria (BK). 

Despite the investigators’ suspicions that he fled to Italy, the man was found in a neighbourhood in London. 

Initial findings revealed that the schoolgirl from the Lower Austrian district of Tulln met the 22-year-old man and his 16-year-old friend at the Danube Canal in the city of Vienna where they all took ecstasy on June 25.

The two suspects then took the girl to the 22-year-old’s apartment located in Vienna’s 22nd district named Donaustadt, where they were joined by the 18-year-old and 23-year-old. 

The men reportedly then gave Leonie more drugs to ‘make her compliant’ and then savagely raped her before rolling her body in a carpet and disposing it on the street around 330ft from the apartment. 

Reportedly, the men were busted after an acquaintance of theirs went to the police and revealed that one of them who was his friend told him what had happened in the apartment. 

The spokesperson did not reveal further details regarding the 22-year-old man’s arrest but Austrian Interior Minister Karl Nehammer told ORF that it was a tribute to the hard work of the detectives involved. 

Nehammer added: ‘The interrogations will now show the escape route.’ 

The investigation continues.
