An illegal Afghan migrant has been arrested in Thessaloniki for sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl.

According to the girl’s mother, the Afghan, 19, was staying in the apartment where the girl lives with her family, in Ampelokipi. The assault took place there, according to a report by Greek news portal The Toc. The mother then filed a complaint with the juvenile protection sub-directorate in Thessaloniki.

In their subsequent investigation, the police also determined that the migrant was staying in Greece illegally. He is being charged with this as well.

Crimes committed by migrants have been on the rise in Greece in recent months. Greece is currently hosting tens of thousands of migrants in its reception centres, both on its islands in the Aegean and on the mainland, with more coming all the time. Most of the migrants have crossed illegally from Turkey. Two stabbings perpetrated by migrants took place on the island of Lesvos last week, resulting in one death.

Migrants have also been attacking and desecrating churches in Greece, and also harassing the local population near their camps. While many Greeks initially welcomed the migrants when the crisis first began, their behavior is causing many of the locals to turn against them.
