Brit university student ‘raped in a pub toilet’ during night out in Italy

A Brit university student was raped in a pub toilet on a night out in Italy, she has claimed.

She claims she was followed into the ladies toilets by a creepy stranger at around 3am, according to official reports.

The young woman, who is studying at the university city of Trento, in the north of Italy, said her attacker, who spoke only broken English, blocked the door of the toilet so that she couldn't leave and then raped her, reports The Sun.

Local media reported her telling police: "I was raped in the pub bathroom."

She called police, was then hospitalised and then filed her complaint, triggering the country's new "Code Red" alert for cases of sexual abuse.

The law came into effect in August to ensure all officers takes these types of attacks seriously and to stop cases being fast-tracked through the legal system.

Local police have moved quickly and revealed they had interviewed the shocked pub owner, drinkers and door staff.

This comes soon after another attack took place in Scotland.

A 23-year-old woman was sexually assaulted in a busy nightclub in East Kilbride, Scotland.

In May 2018, Edison Bala, 29, left his victim bleeding heavily after he put his hand up her skirt, ripped her tights and penetrated her with his fingers.

Bravely, the 23-year-old talked about the attack and how it left her "self harming" with "PTSD" and "suicidal".

Bala was found guilty.

This also comes as former movie producer Harvey Weinstein was convicted of sexual assault and rape by a New York jury on Monday and handcuffed in court.
