  • [01] Foreign national arrested for teenage girl's assault on Paros after positive DNA identification

  • [01] Foreign national arrested for teenage girl's assault on Paros after positive DNA identification

    AMNA/ A 21-year-old Pakistani national was arrested on Saturday by Athens security police for the sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl found seriously injured on July 23 on a beach on the island of Paros, after DNA evidence positively identified the suspect.

    The man was initially taken in for questioning early Saturday as a suspect, as the results of laboratory examinations were awaited.

    A 15-year-old Greek girl was found seriously injured on July 23 at a beach on the popular island of Paros, one of the Cyclades islands in the Aegean.

    The girl, her mother and her sister were staying at the home of friends for a brief vacation, and after an afternoon swim at the Chryssi Akti beach the mother lost sight of the girl and searched her out, eventually finding the teen unconscious and injured behind an outcropping of rocks. The girl bore several wound to the head and face, while the lower part of her bathing suit was missing. Subsequent tests confirmed that the girl had been raped.

    The girl was initially taken to the Paros Health Centre but due to the gravity of her injuries was transferred by helicopter, still unconscious, to the Attiko Hospital in Athens, where she underwent surgery after sustaining serious head injuries.

    Genetic material belonging to an unidentified male was later detected on the clothing and body of the teen girl, as well as genetic material under her fingernails, indicating that she had fought with her assailant and bringing police to believe that the girl was sexually assaulted.

    The investigation spread to Athens after a young foreign male was reported as suddenly leaving the island on a ferry to Athens after the attack.

    The teenager is still being treated at Attiko Hospital, in the intensive care unit, where she is reported in critical condition.

    The suspect worked as a gardener at a Paros hotel near the spot where the girl was assaulted. The man was tracked down through his cell phone and was found in a residence in the port city of Piraeus.
