Police in Brazil have arrested three men they accuse of raping and robbing a foreign tourist. (SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) POLICE DEPUTY ALEXANDRE BRAGA SAYING: "We got information about some of the places they had been, based on bank receipts and transactions that they made. We identified the places and sent teams of police where we obtained even more information about the suspects' physical characteristics and then a little while after their identity. Then we found out where they were and finally arrested them." The two tourists boarded a minibus in this street in Rio de Janeiro, when the dream holiday turned into a nightmare. The woman was raped repeatedly over six hours in this minibus. Her boyfriend was handcuffed and badly beaten. The couple were then robbed and dumped in this street in a nearby city. One of the suspects was the driver of the mini bus. Two of the men deny the charges. (SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) SUSPECT, WALLACE APARECIDO DE SOUZA SILVA, SAYING: "It wasn't me. I don't know and I have nothing to say." (SOUNDBITE) (Portuguese) SUSPECT, JONATHAN FOUDAKIS DE SOUZA, SAYING: "It wasn't me. I didn't do it. It was someone else, you know." Robberies are common on buses in Rio de Janeiro but the violence of this attack has made headlines which could be damaging for Rio authorities as they prepare to host the football World Cup next year and the Olympics in 2016.
