A Greek man has been arrested on charges he used a stun gun to subdue his ex-girlfriend and sexually assault her in her Queens apartment.
 
Authorities say 23-year-old Prodromos Vasilopoulos of Athens was picked up Wednesday at John F. Kennedy Airport while waiting to board a flight to London. A stun gun was recovered in his carry-on bag.

  Authorities say the suspect pretended to be a UPS deliveryman to gain entrance Tuesday to the 19-year-old woman's apartment where he allegedly beat and raped her.
 
Vasilopoulos is to be arraigned Thursday on various charges, including predatory sexual assault and criminal possession of a weapon. If convicted, he faces up to 25 years to life in prison.
 
It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
