Woman charged of raping man
A 22-year-old woman was charged with interfering with a man in his thirties. The incident was allegedly caught on film.
The woman, the offended and a friend were allegedly in the apartment of the friend where the incident took place Saturday night. The man explained to the police that he was laying on the sofa sleeping when he suddenly woke up as the woman was handling him.
“This is not referring to intercourse in the ordinary sense, but sexual relation which is punishable on the same level as rape due to the fact that the man was sleeping,” said Jannicke Fløystad, police lawyer at Hordaland police district to the local paper Bergens Tidende.
According to Fløystad, this is the first time in Hordaland police district that a woman is charged of raping a man.
According to the paper, the friend of the offended allegedly photographed the incident, and he is now charged as an accomplice to the rape.
“The charged individuals deny the charges,” Fløystad said. “They claim no sexual activity took place.”
The three of them allegedly had been drinking, but none of them were excessively intoxicated.
