Montesilvano Marina – She was assaulted from behind and dragged into a closet by a stranger who cut her hair, taped her mouth, covered her face with an envelope, wounded her arms with dozens of syringe pricks and doused with alcohol, taking out a lighter and stating that he wants to play with her. It happened this morning in the entrance hall of a building in Montesilvano, in the province of Pescara.
The victim is a 51-year-old woman who was leaving the house to go to work. She ended up in hospital, apart from the severe trauma, she did not suffer any significant injuries. The attacker, on the other hand, fled. Investigations and searches are carried out by the Carabinieri.
The episode took place around 7 am. In the entrance hall of the building, the woman bent down to move a bottle that prevented the regular operation of the lift, presumably blocked by the man. Attacked from behind, she was dragged into the counter room. The presence of a condominium, made suspicious by the non-functioning elevator, meant that the attacker fled.
