Cops: man used stun gun to rape former girlfriend

Posted: Updated:
NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

A Greek national was arrested at JFK Airport in connection with a brutal attack on his ex-girlfriend.

Authorities say that Prodromos Vasilopoulos, 23, of Athens, pretended to be a UPS delivery man to get into the victim's apartment.

They say he then used a stun gun on her neck and stomach to subdue her.

The criminal complaint says that when the victim began screaming, Vasilopoulos shoved his fingers into her mouth to muffle the sounds and she fell to the floor, where he used the stun gun on her body and stated, "Now you will pay for everything . . . Why did you do this to me ... I want answers."

They say he then sexually assaulted her multiple times.

Hours later, according to the charges, the victim told Vasilopoulos that she did not feel well and needed to go to the hospital. Vasilopoulos allegedly told her that he wanted to have sex with her one more time before she died. He then allegedly sexually assaulted her.

Police say the man had the stun gun in his carry-on bag at the airport when he was arrested.  He had allegedly gotten past the TSA security checkpoint with the stun gun.

The district attorney says that Vasilopoulos had made approximately 200 phone calls and texts to the victim threatening her for breaking up with him.
