A 46-year-old man from Vélez-Málaga was arrested last weekend for an alleged sex attack on a woman as she walked home from work on 16 December.
The man had allegedly gone to the woman's place of work earlier that day and offered money in exchange for sex, which the victim declined.
He apparently then followed as she left work, forced her to the ground and tried to kiss her. She managed to escape.
The man is in custody and has a police record for similar offences.
