Haeundae Man Arrested for Raping ‘Couch Surfing’ Tourist


A 27-year-old man from Haeundae was arrested this week after raping a foreign woman who was staying in his apartment.

According to the Haeundae police, a 24-year-old foreign female was staying at the man’s home through couchsurfing.com on February 13th. The police report noted that the man requested to have sex while the two were drinking together at around 10 p.m., and when she refused, he forced her to have intercourse.

She managed to escape his house afterwards by pretending to go to the store to buy more alcohol, but went to the police immediately to report the crime.

The woman had reportedly stayed in the man’s house for a month prior to the incident.
