  • After her attacker, who had mental problems, fell asleep the woman fled the scene to a neighbour's house

A man, in his 70s and of Finnish origin, has been arrested and given a restraining order after what appears to be another case of gender violence.

The man apparently tried to strangle his wife with a belt after beating her with it and kicking and punching her in their home on Calle Casablanca in Nerja.

After the Finn, who has mental problems and had been drinking, fell asleep, the woman fled the scene to a neighbour's house where she called for help.
