In English:

...The perpetrator was disguised with a black balaklava(scarf?). The police are seeking witnesses to the attack.

Looks kind of planned.
The German word (Sturmmütze) seems to be something more like this:

(And yes, I think it's safe to say the guy didn't do it on the spur of the moment. He was probably just waiting for the right timing and a vulnerable-looking victim.)

Terrible crime committed early on a Sunday evening.

I think the 'broken german' comment means it wasn't anyone Swiss.

So although Basel is/appears relatively safe, it has as many nutters and perverts as any other big town in Europe, so don't get complacent out there!

swiss-german is considered as "broken german" by many people literate in high-german
If the victim was Swiss, then I doubt that the perpetrator was also Swiss because even if some Swiss have trouble with or can't speak Swiss-German, they have been exposed to the dialect enough to RECOGNIZE it. If the victim was not Swiss but new to Switzerland, it's possible that they could have mistaken Swiss-German for broken high German.

The Basel police know more about this than we do, and I hope theyuse whatever means at their disposal to catch this guy. In the meantime, women in the area should take precautions.

Go to the toilet in the park in pairs. Just as you would anywhere else.

Most reported rapes in Switzerland last year were attributed to foreigners:

Total = 454

Swiss nationals = 195 (including double citizens)
Foreign residents = 190 (B, C and Ci)
Other foreign nationals = 69 (including asylum-seekers and sans-papiers)

Some other indicators:

Age < 18 = 48
18-24 = 100
> 24 = 306

Male = 453
Female = 1

Re: Woman raped in Basel

Girls - carry mace and dont hesitate to use it. Guys, if you hear a girl in trouble, get in there. Lastly, who the f33k cares what nationality the raspist was, does it really make any difference ? The only way to stop these a$$holes preying on women is if they are very scared and Mr Plod aint the one to do it, so buy some mace and make sure you get it right in the eyes.

You're only partly right. The Swiss do indeed care what nationality the rapist is. It's part of their nature to be skeptical towards foreigners.

Having said that, it's a horrible cowardly crime and I wish the victim all the best in recuperating and dealing with it.

Re: Woman raped in Basel

This young woman didn't get raped but it sure was a close call. I hope can recover fully from this incident.

Surely it helps the police and public identify the evil bar-steward by narrowing down the criteria of the description of the assailant. Especially with such a brief description and the ****** wearing a balaklava.

Wow, you can tell the difference between a Spanish / Portuguese? German / Swiss German? American / Canadian? Korean / Vietnamese? I cant.

It happened in Basel. And so, High German and all non-Basel dialects or course are regarded as broken German there
