Two arrested for attempted rape against 15-year-old in western Greece

Two men aged 25 and 29 have been arrested in Aitoloakarnania, western Greece, on suspicion of trying to rape a 15-year-old girl.

The teenager’s father, 45, has also been arrested on charges of neglecting a minor after he allowed the two men to drive his daughter home from a cafe they had visited together.

Instead, the suspects took her to one of their two homes and tried to rape her.

According to police, the girl only escaped because at that moment one of her attackers was informed by phone that a relative had been rushed to the hospital. This led to both men leaving and the girl walking home, where she reported the attack.
