A 25-year-old Greek man was arrested on Sunday by police in Prosotsani, in the northern Greek prefecture of Drama, on charges of raping a 23-year-old foreign woman. The woman had reported the rape at the local police station, saying that she was attacked while walking in a Prosotsani neighbourhood at around 3:00 in the morning, when an unknown man forced her into a car and drove off into a remote location in the countryside, where he used violence to force her to have sex with him.

    Police investigating the incident picked up the 25-year-old, who was recognised by the victim as her attacker.

    He will be led before a Drama misdemeanours court prosecutor.
