Serial rapist dubbed 'the Beast of Kavos' breaks his back plunging 100ft into a ravine in Corfu when police tried to arrest him over 'new attack on Albanian woman weeks after he was released' (5 Pics)

A serial rapist known as 'the Beast of Kavos' fractured his back when he plunged 100ft into a ravine while fleeing police in Corfu. 
Dimitris Aspiotis, 47, who preyed on seven British holidaymakers, fractured his leg, hip and spine and ruptured a kidney when he fell from a cliff in Lefkimmi last Friday. 
He was arrested by officers following a three-hour operation to remove him in a stretcher from the secluded spot, the Sun reported. 
Police on the Greek island had launched a manhunt for Aspiotis earlier this month after he was linked to the rape of an Albanian woman who claimed she was dragged into a forest and repeatedly raped at knifepoint. 
Aspiotis was last night in hospital under police guard in Corfu Town and he faces an immediate return to prison after breaching his parole conditions.

The 'Beast of Kavos' was controversially granted early release from prison in August last year, having only served seven years of his 52-year sentence due to a law change. 
A British victim of Aspiotis, Kayleigh Morgan, 32, waived her right to anonymity last year to raise awareness and to slam the Greek government's decision to release him. 
The British Airways stewardess from Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire, said in September: 'I want to know why he's out. I don't believe he's changed.

'A person like that can never change and now I'm in the face terrified he'll do what he did to me again to more victims. 
'When I heard he was out I was in complete shock. I burst into tears and felt sick to my stomach and disgusted.' 
Homeless Aspiotis was seized and sentenced to 52 years in prison for six counts of rape on six women, but was released back to the resort where he repeatedly pounced.

Earlier this month, police said they found another victim - who is said to be Albanian - in a hut after she was reported missing by her partner two days earlier. 
Her girlfriend, who reported the disappearance, told police they had met the convicted rapist the night before.  
The serial sex offender is believed to have preyed on over 100 women visiting the island before being arrested in 2012.
Without prior warning to any of the women he had assaulted, Aspiotis was taken out of prison to live again in Kavos, Corfu despite Greek authorities claiming that the rapist wouldn't be released on parole until he was aged 92. 
Ms Morgan, who was working as a holiday rep in 2010 when she was raped by Aspiotis, was told to put the incident behind her and enjoy her life by a judge after she gave evidence against him at his trial.

The attack happened as she was taking an afternoon walk along the beach, leaving her partially sighted and scarred after Aspiotis punched her in the face before dragging her by her hair into the woods to rape her five times at knife point.  
She told the Sunday People: 'He had raped one of my guests a few days before me and she described his tattoos to me. He has one that says 'F*** the police.
'As soon as I saw those tattoos I knew what was going to happen to me.' 
Aspiotis made the holiday rep lie next to him as he slept, holding a knife to her throat, before she was able to escape hours later at around 4am when he handed her €10 and brazenly told her to go to hospital.  
He was caught 18 days later in the woods where he had been living after he rang into a TV station to surrender. 
Aspiotis attacked Kayleigh and four other British women age 18 to 47 during a stint of offences within a 46-day period.
The attacks came just six weeks after the dangerous rapist was released early after raping three other British woman between the years of 1997 and 2005 - although local authorities claim the real number is higher
