A 19-year-old British tourist has reported an alleged sexual assault by a 37-year-old man on the Greek island of Zakynthos. The accused is said to have used laughing gas to incapacitate the victim before assaulting her.

According to sources, the young tourist was subjected to this distressing incident on Zakynthos's vibrant Greek party island. The alleged perpetrator administered laughing gas to the victim and took advantage of her disoriented state.

Reportedly, the accused was temporarily released by authorities on the island after an extensive apology session with the police. He is facing charges of sexual assault and violations of Greece's firearms regulations, as reported by the Greek newspaper Vradyni.

During the investigation, Greek law enforcement officials discovered two ampules of laughing gas, balloons, and 45 cartridges of 32mm rounds in the man's hotel room in Laganas.

The unnamed man has been released on bail, subject to specific conditions. These conditions include mandatory check-ins at his local police station on the 1st and 15th of each month and a prohibition from leaving the country.
