British tourist, 19, ‘raped on a beach’ during holiday on Greek island of Ios

A British woman has alleged she was raped on a beach on the Greek holiday island of Ios, according to media reports.

The woman, aged 19, reported that she was raped by stranger on the beach in the Mylopotas area on Wednesday night, reported Greek newspaper Proto Thema.

The attack allegedly took place between 9pm and 10.30pm. A police investigation is now underway to find the alleged perpetrator.

Situated halfway between Naxos and Santorini in the Aegean Sea, the island is a popular tourist destination known for its nightlife.

It comes after a separate case earlier this month where a 21-year-old British woman was allegedly raped on holiday in Greece by a man she met at a nightclub.

She was reportedly attacked at the man’s home while his three friends filmed, Greek media reported.

She had been partying with a friend in the Keramikos area of Athens when she met the man and went back to his house, where she was allegedly raped.

The woman reportedly managed to escape the property and report the attack to the police, according to Proto Thema.

A case has been filed against an Israeli man for rape over the alleged attack.
