Pakistani arrested over 'rape of 16-year-old British girl in Crete'


Greek police have arrested a Pakistani man who allegedly raped a 16-year-old British teenager in the toilets of a bar in Crete just yards away from her unsuspecting parents earlier this week.

The attack took place on Wednesday night while the 16-year-old holidaymaker was enjoying an evening with her parents at a bar in the tourist hotspot of Malia.

The young victim excused herself to go to the toilet, where she was allegedly set upon by an attacker who followed her into the bathroom.

He quickly fled the scene, but Malian police ascertained his identity upon reviewing CCTV footage from the bar after the victim reported the ordeal later that night, Greek outlet Protothema reports.

Police have since arrested and charged the man, who has not yet been named, CretaLive reported.

The alleged rapist claimed the girl followed him into the toilet after they met at the bar.
