- Young tourist told police she was assaulted at the man’s house as friends filmed
A 21-year-old British woman has told Greek police that she was raped by an Israeli man after meeting him in a nightclub in Athens.
The young tourist was allegedly attacked at the man’s home in the early hours of Thursday last week after a night out in the Keramikos area.
She told police that during the sexual assault, the man’s three friends appeared out of nowhere and filmed her with their mobile phones.
The woman, who had been partying with her friend from Portugal beforehand, told the group she was leaving but the man refused to stop the act, according to local media.

The 21-year-old Brit was reportedly on holiday in Athens and went to a nightclub with a friend from Portugal the night of the rape
After a struggle the woman managed to escape the property and told police of the incident.
A case has been filed against the Israeli man for rape.
Just last month another British tourist accused a 47-year-old Greek man of raping her in a hotel while on holiday on the island of Rhodes, according to local media.
The 21-year-old said she was attacked at around 2am on Monday in Pefkos and made a complaint to the local police hours later, prompting a case to be opened.
According to Greece’s ANT1News, the young woman’s lawsuit claims the older man took her from a ‘health care store’ in Lindos, found on the south of the island, to a hotel in Pefkos – the main city on the island that sits around 15 miles from Turkey.
There, the outlet reports, the woman claims the man forced her to have sex with him through threats of physical violence.
Upon making her complaint, the police asked a medical examiner to carry out an assessment, ANT1News said.

She handed over the clothes she was wearing on the night which were reportedly sent to Greece’s Directorate of Criminal Investigations for DNA testing.
According to the same publication, a second British woman made a complaint over an incident in Faliraki – seven miles south of Pefkos – 24 hours earlier.
It reports that the 18-year-old British tourist was attacked in the early hours on Sunday, July 2, at a nightclub in the popular destination.
She has told police she was at the club with two of her friends, when she suspects an unknown person injected her with a narcotic substance in her hand – without her realising that it had happened at the time.
From that moment, she says she suffered from complete memory loss, leading her to suspect that she was secretly injected with some form of drug.
As with the first case, a coroner’s examination has been ordered and police have launched an investigation into the alleged attack.
