AN Irish woman was arrested at an exclusive ski resort in Austria after she struck a Russian man on the head with a beer glass having rejected his sexual advances.
The 19-year-old, from Clontarf in north Dublin, was enjoying a night out in the popular ski and health resort of Zell am See in Austria when she was approached by the man shortly after midnight on Saturday.
After a brief conversation, the girl – who has not been named for legal reasons – grew frustrated with the man after he refused to leave her alone.
She struck him with a glass on the side of the head, leaving him with deep lacerations which required hospital treatment.
Police managed to identify the woman a short while after the attack and she admitted the incident, adding that she probably over-reacted because she had been drinking too much.
Police in Zell am See confirmed that the girl has been released from custody and has since returned to Ireland.
