Police in Lower Austria said that the 13-year-old girl from the Korneuburg area north of the capital Vienna had first had contact with the asylum seeker from Afghanistan on social media at the start of the year.
They had exchanged messages which had become increasingly flirty, and more frequent. Eventually they had agreed to meet in a wooded area, where the man, reportedly in his mid-twenties, pressured the girl to have sex.
A police spokesman said: "The accused did not use any violence, but he did threaten her and scared her into doing what he wanted."
Having forced her to have sex, police said that the abuse had then continued with the man forcing her to meet him again to have sex. The police spokesman said: "Over the course of three months the asylum seeker repeatedly sexually abused the schoolgirl."
Her ordeal ended when, on the verge of a nervous breakdown over the situation, she had told her parents what was going on. They had immediately called in police, and the man was arrested. He is currently in investigative custody.
Police said he had been living in an asylum home in Hollabrunn where he had used a smartphone to get in contact with the girl. Police said the investigation is continuing. They said they were not giving any extra details to protect the privacy of the victim.
