Afghan Migrant Arrested for Attacking Elderly Catholic Nun Aboard Austrian Bus

Authorities in Austria have apprehended a teenage migrant from Afghanistan suspected of attacking an elderly Catholic nun, according to reports.

The victim, a 76-year-old Christian sister, was riding a bus in Graz when she was punched in the face by a male assailant who quickly fled the scene.

The strike was reportedly vicious enough to knock the victim's hearing aid from her ear.

After reviewing surveillence footage, police tracked down the foreign male, who was already on their radar due to previous criminal activity, according to the Catholic News Agency (CNA).

“Police officers seized video material from the bus, after which the State Office for the Protection of the Constitution and Counter Terrorism arrested the Afghan-born teenager. The suspect, already known to the police for drug offenses and assault, has confessed to the crime,” CNA reports, citing police sources.

Migrants and jihadists are responsible for waves of threats, violence, and terror across Europe in recent weeks.

Up to 50 Turkish 'teens' shouting "Allahu Akbar" reportedly stormed the church of St. Anton von Padua in Vienna last week, kicking over pews and damaging property.

While officers originally dismissed the siege as a 'youthful prank,' the Vienna State Office for the Protection of the Constitution and Combating Terrorism is probing the incident further.

"Another Afghan was arrested over the weekend while shouting 'Islamic slogans' in St. Stephen's Cathedral," CNA reports, adding that Christian churches in Vienna are being monitored more closely.

Vienna experienced its worst terror attack in decades on Monday, when four people were killed and over a dozen injured by at least one jihadist and potentially many more accomplices.

All suspects arrested in connection with the attack have a 'migration background,' according to Austrian authorities.
