British woman ‘unrecognizable’ due to attack by male compatriot in Marmaris
A British woman who was brutally assaulted by a male compatriot in southwestern Turkey has said she was “unrecognizable” due to the attack.
Marshall was later arrested by Turkish police in a hotel over sexual assault.
After the attack, Higginson told the local media “even her mother and sister could not recognize her after the beating,” describing the man as “a monster.”
“I had met him at a nightclub. I told him he could sleep on the couch at my apartment because he had told me he had nowhere to go. He sexually assaulted me while I was asleep,” she said.
The woman said she could not return to Britain as Turkish doctors had warned her that her health is still not well enough for a long flight.
