A COURT in Seville which specialises in cases of violence against women has remanded in custody a 20-year-year old male for allegedly attacking his 15-year-old girl friend.
Officers from the National Police and emergency services were called to a street in the city after a man was seen to smash a girl’s head against a shop window, breaking the glass.
Whilst paramedics attended to the girl, the officers chased a suspect through the streets until they caught him.
The girl who suffered serious injuries to her head and shoulder including a broken nose is reported to have said that she had known the man for two years and had gone out with him but that night he had seen her with friends and attacked her.
Although there is no prior history of arrest for violence, the court decided after interviewing witnesses that the alleged assault was so serious that the young man whose family come from the Dominican Republic would be held without bail until the trial.
