Attempted rape in Faro

A 21-year-old Polish woman escaped an alleged rape attack at the entrance of a Faro building last Friday.

The attack happened at around 11.40pm in Pontes de Marchil near Forum Algarve.

Tabloid Correio da Manha claims the woman’s male assailant put his hand “up her skirt and tried to remove her underwear”.

The young woman was able to escape and has filed a complaint with PSP police.
