A 31-year-old Nigerian man has been arrested by the Police in Italy after he attempted to rape a lady at Milan’s Garibaldi station few days ago.
The victim, a 25-year-old woman, managed to repel the attack using pepper spray.
It was learnt that the suspect, an undocumented migrant who has made a request to Italy for international protection, had previously been reported for alleged sexual violence against a woman on a train in November 2017.
Matteo Salvini, Italy’s interior Minister who confirmed the arrest of the Nigerian man wrote:
“25-year-old girl attacked some days ago in Milan station, she saved herself from RAPE using pepper spray,” Salvini said.
“Rapist arrested today. P.S. I cannot say that he’s a illegal Nigerian immigrant with a criminal record or they will accuse me of racism”.
