Serial sex offender arrested in Fuengirola

  • A man has been arrested in connection with four sexual assaults committed in the last month and a half

National Police have arrested a man in connection with four sexual assaults committed in Fuengirola in the last month and a half.

The Spanish national, 31, has been detained for a series of crimes using the same modus operandi: following women who are alone, before threatening them with a screwdriver, sexually assaulting them and fleeing in a white van.

The first case happened on 31 May when a young woman was followed into the elevator of her building and threatened. The perpetrator, however, fled after hearing other people close by.

Most recently, on 6 July, a British woman returning home from work was forced to carry out sexual acts on him, before he fled the scene in his van.
