According to a PJ report, a 25-year-old mainland woman has said she was raped after losing consciousness following a dinner with a man she met shortly beforehand.

PJ was notified of the crime in the early hours of Sunday morning. According to PJ, the victim met the suspect, a 37-year-old mainland resident surnamed Chen, on a casino shuttle bus, on Saturday, while she was going from NAPE to Cotai.

Having become acquainted with each other, Chen invited the victim to have dinner with him and three of his friends that night in Taipa.

During the dinner, the victim had two half-glasses of wine, after which she lost consciousness. When she regained consciousness, she realized she was inside a hotel room and was being raped.

According to PJ’s investigation, it has been confirmed that the victim was carried out of the dinner venue by two of the four men she had dinner with. The four men took the victim to the hotel room, and three of them left the room, leaving Chen inside with her.

Soon after midnight on Sunday morning, the victim woke up and left the room, seeking help from the hotel staff.

When the police arrived at the alleged crime scene, Chen was still inside the room. He denied the accusation.

The victim said that she is a cosmetic professional in mainland China, and that she came to Macau alone on March 7, during her holidays.

Chen claimed to be a businessman in China. At the time of writing, Chen is the only suspect arrested.
