Police publish photograph of Galatsi rape suspect

An Athens prosecutor on Thursday approved the publication of a photograph of a 32-year-old Albanian national who is accused of raping and mugging two women in the northern Athenian suburb of Galatsi, following his arrest last week.

The man has been identified as Sinani Shkelqim, born in 1982 in Albania.

Police have requested that anyone with any information on his background or any criminal activities he may have been involved in call 210.869.5540 or 210.869.5542.

Shkelqim is being charged with raping and robbing two women on separate occasions, in 2012 and earlier this year, in Galatsi’s Omorfoklisia Park.
