TWO men have been arrested in Marbella and Malaga on Spain’s Costa del Sol for allegedly attempting to sexually assault their flatmates on Christmas Eve.
In the Malaga case, the alleged attack took place in the bathroom of a home in the northern part of the city. The victim and the alleged aggressor shared a rented house with the partner of the former. It was the victim’s boyfriend who stopped the attack when he heard her call for help.
While giving help, the victim’s boyfriend suffered a superficial knife cut to his kneck.
Police called to the property arrested the alleged assailant, a 29-year-old Moroccan man, for his alleged involvement in the crimes of sexual assault and battery.
In the second incident, in Marbella, a woman managed to call the emergency services on her mobile phone in similar circumstances.
She had locked herself in a room in the house after her flatmate, a 47-year-old Dutchman, first made sexual advances to her which she refused, and then allegedly attempted to sexually assault her.
After getting away from her attacker, she waited in a room in the flat for the police to arrive. The agents located the naked defendant in the building and arrested him for his alleged involvement in the events.
