TWO men have been arrested over the sexual assault of a young female tourist on the Costa del Sol.
The pair, a Moroccan, 27, and an Indian, 24, are accused of pinning down a Finnish woman on the ground and touching her.
The victim, 20, was in Fuengirola for a few days, and had been enjoying the San Juan celebrations.
At around 6am yesterday, police were called to the corner of Calle Martinez Catena and Avenida Ramon y Cajal.
A witness of the attack notified police, who responded quickly, as nearby officers heard the woman scream.
Fuengirola Policia Local officers then cuffed the pair, before the woman was taken to a health centre to be assessed.
