A UK mum was allegedly raped on the Greek island of Corfu after returning to her hotel after a night out.
A man who police sources say is a hotel employee has been arrested after the woman gave a description of him to police.
The woman went to police in the early hours of Sunday morning to tell police the man had assaulted her.
She would have been in “bad condition” when she arrived at the station located in the north of the island.
A police source told The Sun Online that the woman was on holiday with her boyfriend in North Corfu.
After a night out, the couple returned to the hotel but the woman woke up to find the man on top of her, the source said.
Police then arrested a 40-year-old man based on his description and brought him to the station, where the tourist identified him as his attacker.
The man denied the rape charge and claimed the woman had consented to have sex with him.
He remains in custody while a complaint is filed against him.
The British tourist will undergo a forensic examination today, according to Greek media.
A spokesperson for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office said: “We are in contact with the Greek authorities following an incident in Corfu and stand ready to provide support if required.”
The Sun Online has contacted Corfu Police for comment.
