NoCutNews reports that a 30-year-old Nigerian has been arrested and charged with sexually assaulting a 23-year-old foreign English teacher in Dongducheon on Dec 29.

Police believe the Nigerian tricked the teacher, whom he met in a club, by telling her he would take her home. Instead he took her to his home, where he allegedly assaulted her.

The man fled after the assault, but he was arrested by police after he briefly stopped by his home on Feb 3.

The Nigerian had applied for refugee status in 2011, arguing that he faced persecution in Nigeria because he’d converted from Islam to Christianity.
