A 32-year-old woman from the Dominican Republic who travelled to Benalmádena to meet her boyfriend was locked in his flat, nude, and subjected to sexual assault and mistreatment over a period of eight days.

The couple met online in August and after talking on the phone she decided to fly to Malaga and stay with her family there, although she soon moved to Benalmádena, where both her cousin and boyfriend lived.

However, her boyfriend apparently became jealous of her job working in her cousin's bar, fearing she would meet other men, and decided to lock her in his home.
