A man has been sentenced to six years in prison for the attempted rape of a 21-year-old woman at a Marbella bus stop in May last year. The attack happened at dusk when the victim was waiting for the bus at a stop on the main A-7 road at Rio Real.
The man approached the woman and threatened her with a knife. He was only stopped from going further with his attack when the bus came into view. The court found that the man's alibi was false and that the victim's testimony was highly credible.
