American tourist raped in public toilet near Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris

An American woman was raped on Saturday in a public toilet in the heart of a bustling tourist district in Paris.

According to The Sun, the 27-year-old was walking with a boyfriend on the River Seine across from Notre Dame Cathedral when she stopped to use a public bathroom around 1am.

“It’s well lit, and there were a lot of people around, but the woman’s partner was worried because she was inside for so long,” a source told the paper.

Her boyfriend then came near the toilet, heard her crying and witnessed the attack.

The victim managed to break free of her attacker, who was detained in the bathroom by her partner and other women before police arrived, according to the outlet.

The 23-year-old suspect denied wrongdoing and claimed he had a “consensual arrangement with the woman,” according to reports.

He was charged with rape and remained in custody, while the victim was treated at a hospital before returning to the States.

She remained in contact with French police and prosecutors.
