Brazilian fitness influencer Duda Martins has claimed that she was drugged and sexually abused during a meeting in a bar.
Martins, who boasts 207,000 followers on Instagram, said the incident took place at a bar in the lively beachside neighbourhood of Ponta Verde in the city of Maceio in the Brazilian state of Alagoas on 29th December.
During an Instagram Live video with her lawyer Julia Nunes, Martins said she went to meet a man in a bar at around 2.35pm and only drank three glasses of gin, after which she did not remember anything about the next 12 hours.
After arranging to meet the man, she had a training session arranged with a pal at 5pm, but the friend could not get hold of her and later said that her phone was turned off the whole time, possibly by the suspect.
Martins said she remembered waking up in the man’s apartment in the neighbourhood of Jatiuca in the early hours of 30th December, some 12 hours after the bar meeting.
She added: “When it was around 3.30am or 4am, I do not remember anything that happened to me, where I was, how I left, how I ended up at his house, or if anything happened to me.
“I just have the feeling that I was hurt, there are pictures that doctors took. I had bruises on my chest, bumps on my head, and my private parts were injured.
“So I wasn’t just drugged, I was totally hurt. When I woke up, I came back around and I was on his couch. At that point, I didn’t even realise that I was without my underwear.”
She said she went to a nearby women’s hospital where she underwent examinations and took various medications.
Her lawyer said: “So far nothing has been done, on New Year’s Eve he was jumping around and having fun. How many other women could have been victims of this aggressor?”
Appointed police delegate Maria Angelita confirmed on 3rd January that they are investigating the allegations.
