A SWEET seller has appealed an 18-month prison sentence handed to her following an alleged ‘racist attack’ by police.
Meylan Martinez, 25, from Honduras was plying her trade on a Benalmadena beach without a permit.
But instead of a fine, cops allegedly dragged her by the arm some 100 metres from Playa las Gaviotas, up a flight of steps and onto the paseo.
After three beach security agents apprehended five-feet tall Meylan, they radioed in for two Policia Local units.
One officer allegedly grabbed her neck and yelled ‘she’s not human’ and ‘I’m going to kill this one’.
The former cleaner was put on Diazepam after sustaining severe neck pain and bruises on her arms.
“I couldn’t stop crying after being dragged,” Meylan, who studied electrical engineering and plays bass, told the Olive Press.
“People were screaming, telling the police to stop:”
Karina said her sibling now ‘can’t sleep’ and ‘wakes up screaming in the night’.
The town hall and police failed to comment in time for press.
