A German national was allegedly robbed and then raped in her rental flat in Mumbai. What has shocked and embarrassed the Mumbai police is that the incident happened in the upmarket Perry Cross Road in Bandra.

According to the police, the victim, a 27-year-old musician, was alone in the house when the incident occurred around 3.45 am. The intruder barged into the flat through the window and robbed money, including Euros and Indian currency, and a camera. Hearing the noise, the victim woke up. The accused brandished a knife asking her to keep quiet, the officer said.

The victim panicked but managed to run outside and banged on the door of her neighbouring flat. But she received no response as no one was there.

Meanwhile, the intruder dragged her back into the house and allegedly raped her at knife point.

The shocked woman rushed to the bathroom and locked herself. She also raised an alarm and hearing her screams, the neighbours called the police. By the time the police arrived, the culprit had escaped.

Police found the main door of the victim’s flat locked and had to break it open. The victim came out of the bathroom after she was assured that the police had arrived.

Police registered an FIR based on the basis of her complaint alleging rape, housebreak and robbery. They also took her for a medical examination and reports are awaited. Police have formed eight teams and rounded up suspects in and around Bandra based on the information given by the victim.

The police said the victim stayed with a roommate, an Indian, who had gone to Kerala at the time of the incident.
