Fuengirola is a popular holiday spot for Brits

A MANHUNT for a serial sex attacker is underway after a British woman was attacked on the Costa del Sol.

The unnamed woman, in her 20s, was forced to perform sex acts on a white van driver after he thrust a screwdriver to her throat.

Sources close to the case say the man was waiting for the victim in the back seat of her car.

He then threatened her with the screwdriver when she went to turn her engine on, telling her she wouldn’t be the first he had killed.

The attacker fled the scene in his van after the terrifying assault.

The attack happened just behind the popular port

The woman had been heading home at around 4am after finishing work in Fuengirola when the attack took place on calle Meastra Angeles Azpiazu.

Spanish police have linked the attack with two others in the past month that have identical sickening details.

A few weeks ago, a Spanish woman in the same area was followed into a lift by a man who then forced her to drop her trousers.

He also used a screwdriver to threaten her.

Luckily, he fled after hearing a noise before he could sexually assault her.

Last Sunday, another Spanish woman was attacked at 7am while walking home from a night out.

A man rubbed himself against her and tried to get the young woman to fondle him.

When her friends began shouting at him, he is said to have calmly walked away and driven off in a white van.

In all three cases, which all occured in Fuengirola, a man fled the scene in the same vehicle.

The attacker is described as being around 5ft 7ins, dark-skinned and short-haired with an athletic build and a possible tattoo on one of his arms.

  1. Question. How do you define “expat”?

    Is it
    A: Someone who lives in another country, and tries to make a living there.
    B: A British tourist.

    Would it be less of an issue if the story reported did not happen to an “expat”?

    Just a simple question.

  2. We are an English newspaper that represents the expat community here be they British, German, Dutch, Moroccan whatever… That is the defining mission statement of the OP however that is not to say that this attack is any more serious or newsworthy because the victim is foreign, just that is the angle here… We will continue to report and pursue crime stories like this, as we have done with the Lisa brown case, the missing Amy story or any others that nobody else will report on independently given they don’t have either a journalist, a free press agenda…or simply the guts to do it!
