Galatsi rapist caught

A 32-year-old Albanian national was expected to face a prosecutor in Athens on rape charges on Monday.

The man had been arrested on Friday for the alleged rape of two women in the neighborhood of Galatsi last year and earlier this year.

According to authorities, the suspect had threatened the victims with a knife near the area’s Omorfoklissias park, before leading them to a deserted area where he allegedly raped them and subsequently stole their mobile phones and cash.
