Mumbai: A man has been arrested for allegedly trying to rape a Dutch theatre artiste in suburban Goregaon, police said on Thursday.
The incident occurred when the 20-year-old victim was
returning to her rented house in suburban Mulund in an
auto-rickshaw in the wee hours of Tuesday, they said.

According to police, the driver telephoned one of his
friends, who boarded the three-wheeler mid way and sat next to
the former.

The accused then drove her to a secluded location in
Aarey Colony and tried to rape her, police said, adding that
as the victim resisted by raising an alarm, the duo ran away
with her purse.

However, it was not yet clear as to which of the two
accused has been arrested.
