Catharina Latomia is a young girl featured in the book Daemonolatreiae libri tres by Nicholas Remy.

According to the account of Remy a demon:

"twice raped her in prison [...] and she very nearly died from the injuries she received by that coition".

Catherine Latonia confessed this case to him in 1587. If that confession was an excuse to avoid giving the name of the rapist or the girl actually thought that a demon had raped her, will remain unknown.
