A man has been arrested by police in Malaga for an alleged hate crime on the city’s streets. The victim, a 30-year-old transsexual woman, was walking along the Antonio Machado promenade when, out of the blue, she was kicked from behind in the back. Added to the physical aggression was a verbal attack, with insults directed at her gender identity.

The victim herself, who required medical assistance, reported the attack and a National Police investigation by the EVO (violent extremism and hate) team led to the arrest of a 28-year-old man for allegedly being responsible for the assault.

The case has now been passed to the courts.
