Three women stabbed to death in brothel bloodbath as knifeman goes on rampage in Vienna

The knifeman is believed to have roamed from room-to-room in the Asia Studio in the horrific massacre.

The suspect, a 27-year-old Afghan asylum seeker, was arrested nearby and found with a knife suspected of being the murder weapon.

He was tasered by police and was also found to be covered in knife weapons – likely self-inflicted, reports Die Presse.

The suspect’s motive is unknown.

Police found a fourth woman inside the brothel and she is being questioned as a witness.

She is reported to have locked herself inside a room and overheard the horrific attack.

Police spokesman Philipp Hasslinger said the three victims were found in seperate rooms.

Brothels are legal in Austria, and the Asia Studio is in Vienna’s 20th district, one of the city’s poorest areas.  

It came as two other women were also murdered in Austria in the city in a separate case.

The mother and her 13-year-old daughter had been found dead in a Vienna apartment earlier Friday.

They were possibly strangled or choked to death, with the father a prime suspect, reported Austrian media.

Austrian women’s groups have recorded 26 femicides last year – with many being killed at the hands of partners or ex-partners.

The Austrian government has vowed to crack down, pledging several measures including increased funding for organisations helping victims of violence.

But NGOs say the government is not doing enough to stop the murders.

Between 2010 and 2020, 319 women were killed in Austria, mostly by their male partners or ex-partners, with a record high of 43 victims in 2019, according to a government study.
