Austria has reported a spike in crime after Germany began turning away hundreds of asylum seekers from its border.
Some areas have been described as no-go zones, especially for women, with one teenage girl saying she was now ‘terrified’ to leave the house.
Passengers are also asking officials to accompany them onto platforms at one major train station because they fear being attacked.
According to the latest reports, one in 10 of those trying to reach Germany are being sent back and are now stranded in Austria.
In the northern Austrian town of Scharding, a popular crossing point, officials said 300 people a day were being rejected.
Many of these are drifting to other parts of the country like the nearby Linz train station, where police reportedly said many of those causing trouble have come from Morocco.
Local media reports that the area has become an almost no-go area.
One father has written an open letter to the regional governor Josef Puehringer and to police saying his 16-year-old daughter is scared to go out alone.
