A 60-year-old British woman lost several teeth and suffered a small skull fracture after falling on the steps going up to Malaga’s Gibralfaro castle during a violent assault.

The woman, who was visiting the city, had her handbag stolen from her last Friday afternoon and fell on the steps in the immediate aftermath of the incident while the perpetrators fled the scene.

National and Local Police forces found the bloodied woman in a state of shock but managed to find out what had happened before she was transferred to the city’s Clínico Universitario Hospital with serious injuries.

National Police are hunting two women and a man in connection with the assault.
