A British tourist who was sexually assaulted and held against her will for several weeks in Australia was finally rescued by the police.
The victim’s car was intercepted in the Outback area on a highway near the rural town of Mitchell. The police officer searched the vehicle and found a 22-year-old man hidden in the back.
The car was intercepted after the woman left a gas station without paying.
Police said the victim and his alleged perpetrator met three months ago in Cairns, northeast of the country, where the man lived, and had a “relationship”. However, the man became violent in January.
The woman was repeatedly assaulted and assaulted while the couple traveled about 1,400 kilometers from Cairns to the city of Roma in the Outback.
The police explained that the woman had only rare opportunities to escape, and that even if she had succeeded, she would have found herself in a foreign country with no resources and no one to help her.
The man, whose identity has not been revealed, is the subject of multiple charges, including four rape and eight assault.
The woman was treated for bruising and body and facial lacerations.
