An Italian newspaper reports today that a Costa crew member is accused of raping a young passenger aboard the Costa Diadema while the cruise ship was docked in Naples.
The newspaper says that a Costa bartender allegedly followed an 18 year-old French woman into her cabin and raped her brutally.
The accused rapist is identified as 30 year-old Costa employee Mark Guinucud from Manila, Philippines.
Crew member Guinucud was supposed to fly back to the Philippines, but an Italian prosecutor reportedly blocked him from flying. The crew member was arrested and taken into police custody when the cruise ship arrived in the port of La Spezia.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Monday. Guinucud at this time is held in the prison of La Spezia.
