A foreign man has been arrested in connection with investigations following the violent death of a German individual inside a cave in the Barranco de Maro ravine area in Nerja.

Guardia Civil officers from Nerja arrested a middle-aged man for the alleged fatal attack which took place on Friday 8 September. Several witnesses alerted authorities after they found the body with severe head injuries. Police then detaineed a man, who had been living inside one of the numerous inhabited caves in the area for several months.

It is the second violent death in the same area in less than a year after a Czech citizen was allegedly murdered in March. In that case, the incident happened in the area of ​​the road that connects Maro with the beach, approximately one kilometre away from Friday's incident. For this first homicide, a person of Czech nationality was arrested in July.

Friday's incident is said to have been sparked after several months of disputes and fights between the alleged perpetrator and the victim.
