London, January 19: A woman residing in the United Kingdom's London city, who rented out her house on Airbnb, claimed that the first guest at her home raped her. According to the New York Post, the 43-year-old guy allegedly offered to massage the victim before raping her. It is said that the incident happened in May 2021 in Croydon. She admitted to the police that Diego Dellarovere was her first guest and that she had never before hired out a room in her house.
Dellarovere booked the accommodation even though she lived in Kensington, barely 12 miles away, which the lady considered "strange," according to testimony given to the court.
