A 35 year old women was beaten and nearly killed when she turned down a man for sex.
Emma Higginson, 35, suffered a fractured skull, eye socket and nose when she was attacked at her hotel in Marmaris, southern Turkey,
The local police in Turkey arrested a British man named Declan Marshall, 27, in connection with the assault. Declan works as a car salesman in the UK.
So what happened? Here is her recount of the incident:
Ms Higginson, from Kent in southeast England, was with friends when they met Marshall in a nightclub and they offered him the sofa to sleep on as he said he had no way to get home.
“I went to my room and fell asleep but a few minutes later he was in my bed trying to have sex with me,” she said.
“I said I wasn’t interested. I remember him saying I had no respect but I said I had a boyfriend.
“Then he hit me twice and I blacked out. When I woke up I was on the balcony and there was blood everywhere.
“I want everyone to see what this man has done to me,” Ms Higginson told The Sun from her hospital bed in the tourist resort town on the Turkish Riviera.
“My mum and sister could barely recognise me. I’m in so much pain.
“I’m covered in bruises and I just want to go home but can’t as the doctors say my injuries are too bad to fly.
“One of my teeth fell out this morning and I’m going to need plastic surgery to get my face back to normal. The man who did this to me is an animal. He’s a complete nutter and should be locked up for a long time.”
