(Notes: The violent nature of the assault already an indication that the attacker might be a gypsy. The today's attack eerily resembles to another high profile case, which took place last summer when twenty year-old Kata Bándy was assaulted during the night as she was walking home from a party by a gypsy. Unfortunately, she couldn't escape from the attacker and after the assault she ended up dead in a ditch. By the way, Kata Bándy's murderer was sentenced today to life imprisonment without the possibility of parole.)
Police released the picture of the person suspected of attacking Pécs Mayor Zsolt Páva's 20 year-old daughter in the early hours Friday morning. And what every sane person suspected turned out to be true; the perpetrator is a gypsy. Take a look at the pictures.
The perpetrator -- Zoltán Nyerges -- grew up in an orphanage. He was 17 years old when he raped a girl in Komló said the criminal's brother.
He was sentenced to five years in prison and he was released from jail less than a year ago. He is unemployed ever since. He makes a living selling women into prostitution.
