Alexander Satlaev, 29, appeared before Girne District Court on Wednesday accused of carrying out the attack beneath an apartment building in Yaz Gülü Sokak, the court heard, allegedly stealing 300TL and 35 euros from the woman’s bag. The victim fainted after being “strangled” from behind by Satlaev, the court was told.
Police officer Adnan Kardeşler said that a beach towel and the victim’s handbag had been taken from the scene as evidence but that the cash had not been found.
Mr Satlaev, who arrived as tourist in the TRNC on August 19, was remanded in custody for seven days following a further court appearance yesterday.
If convicted, he will be deported via Turkey once he has served his sentence, a police spokesman said.
