The costas are begining to be a dangerous place for lone females. East European gangs, Morroccan gangs, Sub Sahara African gangs roaming in the early hours looking for victims.
The police need to get on top of this or the tourists will stop spending their money on the Coast.
Courts need to clamp down hard, bring on the death penalty for rape of this sort.

Taxi driver indeed, He could have got the lady home, but sign of the times, Could he have been involved? assuming it was a he, Will anyone ever know?
Alhurin prison to some is food and warmth, some would prefer that to sleeping hungry on the beach.
I hope the lady recovers without being infected with dirt

I know Benalnadena very well and firstly would never use the underpass to cross the road there. Especially in the quiet months when there aren’t many people around. Our apartment was robbed whilst I slept in the afternoon and I have not returned since. A morrocan man hsd managed to get through the gates to the complex which are normally locked, past a 24hr security guard and into the apartment block. He knocked on the door and seemed shocked that I answered I was robbed as me and my baby slept. The guy tried it on the neighbours the following day. The resort has gone rapidly down hill with bars abd restaurans closing abdvtakk buildings popping up everywhere.

When the drinks in the witt is out. The lady was foolish no doubt, but in a civilised country a woman should go about her business anytime of the night or day.
The Spanish police should adapt zero tollerance to unwanted street vendors, Romany beggers and Moroccan muggers, If seen they should be lifted.

I have recently returned from benalmadena and I had a fantastic time and the majority of people were fantastic. but the hassle off the immigrants to come to this bar get free this and free that kept me off the square I only ventured into times square or molly malones I got the impression if I went to the bars round the back I would have been robbed and beaten in the small hours of sunday on the way back to my apartment a car stopped and asked if I wanted to get in and go to their bar the problem is that somebody else probablys took the bait.
I think that the Spanish police should take action against these gangs and put them back on their wooden boats back to Africa this attack and another one in the same week is unacceptable and will keep people away.
I will return to benalmadena as I found the bars and cafes away from the 24hr square to be very friendly indeed but you have to have your head screwed on if you are alone

Sorry read the article 3 times, I did not see a single word that implied it was a group of “immigrants” or people who came on “wooden boats”, Could you please leave your horrible rascism back in your own country and don´t bring it here. As an immigrant in this country i really resent it.
So if you would choose not to come back to my town I would be very happy, thank you
