An asylum seeker in Germany is accused of throwing a woman out of a window and breaking both her legs after she refused to have sex with him.

Dawit A., 34, allegedly drank beer and vodka at a refugee centre in Bensheim before threatening a woman identified only as Tirhas, 26, with a broken bottle.

She claims he ordered her to lie down and asked if she had 'another man' before hurling her out of a window where she fell 15ft on to the concrete below.  

On trial at Frankfurt State Court, prosecutors said Tirhas visited Dawit in his room in July last year with another couple.

Lawyers said the men drank while the women cooked and later made coffee.

But at some point during the gathering Dawit A. became violent, the prosecution allege, throwing the apartment keys out of the window.

The prosecution said he was furious because he wanted sex and she refused him. 

Standing on crutches to give evidence, she told the court: 'I shouted "Please let me out of here." He demanded to know if I had another man.

'He threatened me with a broken bottle, wanted to stab me in the belly. He wanted sex, said I should lie down. 

Dawit claimed he is being held for 'no reason' and that life has been 'unfair' since he came to Germany in 2014. He previously sexually assaulted a 17-year-old girl

'When I kept saying "no", he raised me up like a child, carried me to the window and dropped me.'

She plunged nearly 15ft, breaking both legs and spent 16 days in hospital. She added: 'He not only broke both my legs, but also my spirit.'

Dawit A. cried in the dock, claimed he was sitting in prison on remand for 'no reason' and that life had been unfair to him ever since he arrived in Germany in 2014.

But the court heard that is he also being investigated for harassing another woman and sexually assaulted a 17-year-old girl.

Dawit is facing up to five years behind bars for grievous bodily harm, threats, coercion, sexual coercion and deprivation of liberty if found guilty. 

The trial will conclude next week.
