Woman rescued by Bangladeshi origin in Italy

Gang-rape attempt
STAFF REPORTER
Woman rescued by Bangladeshi origin in Italy

A woman says she was rescued from being gang-raped by 25 men in Florence, Italy after an immigrant flower seller, a Bangladeshi origin, drove them away, according to UK-based MailOnline. Gaia Guarnotta, 25, was walking alone at 11.30pm in the city, in Italy's northern Tuscany region, when she was approached by the group near Piazza della Repubblica, the online news portal reported on Thursday.

She said the men were drunk, called her a 'whore', spat at her and then tried to take her away to an unknown location.

Guarnotta, a photographer originally from Livorno, said the Italian men at first tried to convince her to take to an unknown destination.

She tried to run away but they called her a 'slut' and a 'whore', Guarnotta claims.

On her Facebook page, she wrote: “I was walking alone on the street at 23.30. I like to walk, I love Florence and I love the night.”

“Then the nightmare begins. They start to say phrases like, "Come on with us, let's have fun."

She alleged they dragged her by the arm and even took off her glasses.

Rose seller Hossein Alamgir noticed the commotion and came to her aid, chasing the men away. Alamgir, 58, originally from Bangladesh, has lived in Italy since 2005, according to Direttanews. After rescuing Guarnotta, he took her to a safe place and fed her. He also provided her with towels so that she could wash, and gave her a rose as a present.

Guarnotta said: “Thank you to this world for there are people like Hossein, who help without wanting anything in return. This is a face I will never forget.”
