British woman 'raped by security guard in her hotel room' at Egyptian Sharm-el-Sheikh resort
Guard was allegedly walking woman back to her room when he entered the room and assaulted her
A British woman has been allegedly raped by a security guard in a five star hotel while on holiday in Egypt at the popular Sharm-el-Sheikh resort.
The woman, who is in her 40s, was allegedly being escorted back to her room by the man when he entered the room and assaulted her.
She is now back in the UK and Hampshire Police are leading the investigation.
A police spokesman told The Daily Echo: “Officers with Operation Amberstone are currently assisting with an investigation into a serious sexual assault on an English woman in the Sharm-el-Sheikh region.”
A spokesman for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office said: “We are aware of an incident involving a British national. We are providing assistance.”
The Foreign Office has issued a warning on its website of a rise in sexual assaults against British nationals in Egypt since 2011, including against children.
The advice reads: “In 2012, the FCO handled 23 cases of sexual assault and 6 cases of rape. Some assaults were against minors.
“Many occurred in what were considered to be safe places such as hotels. Assaults have occurred in taxis and on microbuses. If you are travelling on a microbus, avoid being the last passenger left on the bus. Women should take extra care when travelling alone.”
