sanpedroferiaA GIRL has been harassed, assaulted and had a bucket of dirty water thrown over her in a callous gay hate crime.

The perpetrator, a 27-year-old man, launched himself upon her at the October 13 Fuengirola feria while she was walking hand-in-hand with her girlfriend and a group of friends.

The young woman was rushed to hospital when it happened, at around 2am, and the man has now been arrested for discrimination, hate and infringing her personal rights.
