Italy: Tunisian migrant suspected of raping 40-year-old jogger arrested


A Tunisian asylum seeker, aged 16, who is suspected of having raped an Italian woman while she was out jogging, was arrested on Tuesday in a small town on the Italian island of Sardinia, report Voice of Europe.

The 40-year-old victim was out jogging in an isolated area on the outskirts of La Maddalena, a small commune on the northern side of Sardinia, when the young Tunisian attacked her from behind, raped her, and then attempted to strangle her, L’Unione Sarda reports.

Fortunately, before the migrant attacker managed to shut the woman up entirely, she was able to scream for help which caught the attention of two people who were also exercising in the area. After hearing the victim’s cries, the two joggers in the area immediately came to her aid and chased the rapist off. Had they failed to act quickly, the migrant could have killed her.

The two men then transported the victim, who was shaken to her core, to a hospital nearby where she was treated for injuries.

At around 1am, not long after the attack was reported to police, local law enforcement managed to capture the attacker after locking the area down.

Apparently, the 16-year-old Tunisian suspect had been known to local police for previous run-ins, and had been living at the La Maddalena migrant reception facility.

Unfortunately, in Italy and other western European countries, sexual assaults by migrants against native Europeans have become “part and parcel” of daily life.
