A coronavirus nurse was subjected to a 45-minute ordeal at the hands of a illegal migrant who allegedly raped her while she waited for the bus home after finishing her shift treating Covid-19 patients, according to reports in the Italian media.
The migrant from Senegal was arrested on Sunday for allegedly raping the 48-year-old after she left work at around 3pm, at the Corso Arnaldo Lucci Metropark bus stop behind Naples’ main train station.
Police reportedly arrived after about 45 minutes.
The nurse told La Repubblica “he kept repeating ‘let me do what I want or I’ll kill you. Stand still and don’t scream’,” adding “he was double my size and all his weight was on my back”.”
The Italian nurse looks after patients recovering from the trauma of having Covid-19.
