Norwegian woman may have concocted rape story

This one is still under investigation: no signs of trauma to the woman after the medical exam, but she claims she was "brutally" raped. It doesn't add up, does it?

Woman may have concocted rape story.

Police are still investigating the case of a 19-year-old Norwegian woman who claimed she was brutally raped in Hvar on Hvar Island on 2 August.

The woman said a man had probably followed her on her way home from a local disco and then raped her.

But, one week after the alleged rape, a witness told police a completely different story.

The daily Slobodna Dalmacija has reported a 60-year-old Slovene was walking that morning as usual and saw a men and a woman in an intimate embrace. According to him, there was no violence.

On his way back, he was very surprised to hear a woman screaming and calling for help. The situation was very strange to him so he decided to report what he had seen to the police.

The girl had a blood-alcohol level of 0.73 promille and confessed to police she had been under the influence of alcohol that night.

She underwent a gynaecological examination that revealed she had engaged in sexual intercourse but that detected no sign of violence. The Croatian media have reported the girl confessed to friends it was her first sexual experience. According to some rumours, she was ashamed because her friends had seen her with a man and made up the rape story.
Police are still searching for the young man who was with the woman that night and assume he also is a foreigner.
