AN elderly man from Malaga has been arrested for sexually harassing his wife’s carer.

Reports say the 86-year-old Spaniard is accused of showing his genitals and making severely inappropriate comments.

The social carer, who looks after the elderly and those with disabilities, visited the family home daily to tend to the elderly man’s sick wife.

However, she became unable to continue with her work after the husband repeatedly made sexual advances towards her.

Policia Nacional say the carer has needed medical help and has been forced to change her job since the harassment.

The investigation continues.
