Horror moment Brit, 20, was ‘dragged into Ayia Napa hotel room & gang raped’ caught on CCTV as cops hunt SIXTH attacker | The SunSeptember 5, 2023
KEY moments before the horrific gang rape of a 20-year-old British woman in Cyprus may have been captured on CCTV, it has been revealed.
Greek sources revealed today that the alleged victim was taken “by force” by at least five Israeli men to a room where she was violently sexually assaulted and raped.
And cameras along the route may have captured the young woman being frogmarched to the scene of the sex attack.
Police probing the incident were understood to have requested footage from Ayia Napa’s two-star Fedrania Gardens Hotel.
More men were believed to have been present during her ordeal – and police revealed a sixth alleged attacker was being sought after absconding.
The five already held – two aged 20 and three aged 19 – were remanded in custody for eight days on Monday pending inquiries.

They all denied rape in court on Monday insisting sex was consensual following their arrest after the woman reported the incident at her holiday hotel on Sunday afternoon.
The arrests came four years after a notorious case in which a British holiday girl was thrown into jail for five months in Cyprus accused of making up claims that she was gang raped by Israelis.
All five alleged sex attackers appeared in court at Famagusta District Court on the Mediterranean isle yesterday and denied all charges.
The alleged victim – described by police sources as being "very distressed" – did not appear in court.

After appearing before the magistrate, the five were taken to a jail in nearby Paralimni where they will remain until next Tuesday.
In the disturbing 2019 Cyprus rape case, the then 18-year-old from Derbyshire flew out to Ayia Napa for a summer of fun after finishing her A levels.
She struck up a holiday romance with a 21-year-old Israeli man and went to his hotel room – but his friends forced their way in and took turns raping her, she claimed.
The alleged victim reported the assault to police and 12 Israelis were later arrested. They all claimed the sex was consensual.
Then, in a shock move, the alleged victim was then charged with causing public mischief and thrown into a cockroach-infested jail for five weeks.
A judge then handed her a four-month suspended sentence in January 2020 before she was finally allowed to fly home six months after her ordeal started.
