A British woman has allegedly been raped by a wealthy 30-year-old American man while on holiday in Mykonos.
Greek media have reported that the woman, 22, told police that she had met the man, who is from a wealthy family from New York, on Saturday afternoon in one of the party island’s bars.
It is claimed that both her and his group of friends wanted to continue the party, so they all went back to the woman’s hotel room.
She alleges he followed her into the bathroom of her hotel room, where he raped her. The man, 30, has denied the allegations, claiming she consented.
The 22-year-old told Greek police: ‘There he forced me to have sex with him while I tried to push him away, explaining to him in vain that I was not in the mood for sexual intercourse.’
‘But he persisted and with his strength managed to squeeze me and immobilize me,’ Greek news outlet Proto Thema reported.
The woman underwent a forensic examination with the Police Department of Mykonos, and a case was put against her alleged rapist.
The man is set to appear before the Syros Prosecutor.
Proto Thema also revealed that another 22-year-old Danish woman claims she was raped by a man on Saturday night, who took her back to her hotel in the Argyraina area after meeting in Mykonos Town, where she alleges, he forced her to have sex with him.
After the alleged rape, the man is said to have left her hotel, and she reported the incident to police at 8:50 am on Sunday morning. She told Mykonos Police Sub-Directorate that the man was her age, 5ft 9in, black hair with dark eyes, noting that he wore black trousers and a red t-shirt. Police are said to be looking for the alleged rapist.
Only last month, a British man was accused of raping his own daughter on another Greek island. In early June, another British tourist reported that she was allegedly raped by her taxi driver in Crete after he picked her up from a bar in the early hours of May 31.
The 43-year-old woman told authorities in the resort town of Hersonissos that she was abused by the driver, claiming that instead of taking her to her hotel, he found an isolated spot and proceeded to rape her in the vehicle.
