QUEENS — A 23-year-old Greek national wanted by cops for a brutal sexual assault in Jamaica was busted at John F. Kennedy Airport Wednesday morning after a stun gun was found in his carry-on bag, according to the Queens District Attorney's office.

Prodromos Vasilopoulos, 23, of Athens, allegedly used the stun gun in a violent sexual assault on his ex-girlfriend in Queens the day before, the DA said.

The suspect allegedly stalked and harassed the 19-year-old victim with some 200 phone calls and text messages, then posed as a delivery person and forced his way into her apartment by using a stun gun on her neck and stomach before repeatedly sexually assaulting her, officials said.

When the victim asked to be taken to the hospital, "Vasilopoulos allegedly told her that he wanted to have sex with her one more time before she died," a statement from the Queens DA said.

The victim was treated for multiple injuries at a local Queens hospital, the DA said.

Vasilopoulos was expected to be arraigned Thursday on a number of charges, including predatory sexual assault, burglary, strangulation and criminal possession of a weapon, officials said.

He could face up to 25 years to life in prison if convicted.
