Guardia Civil officers arrested a man on suspicion of sexual assault in Nerja last Friday. The 40-year-old suspect is accused of sexually assaulting a female shop assistant in an incident which allegedly took place in a clothes shop in the town centre in February. The man, who has the initials, J.C.C.C, was arrested by officers when they found him in his vehicle near the Playazo beach last week. He has been given a 300-metre restraining order and has been released on bail awaiting trial. The man has a criminal record, but not for offences of a sexual nature.
