The incident happened at a parking area for motorhomes and caravans located in the Los Puertas area of the village.

Officers quickly arrived quickly at the scene where the Moroccan man, who admitted punching and kicking his partner, was arrested. The man also confessed that he had tried to take the woman’s handbag because it contained her identity documents.
