Young tourist ‘is strangled unconscious and raped’ in Marbella: Moroccan suspect ‘stalked victim for a kilometre after she walked past him in the port’

A 23-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested on suspicion of raping a tourist in Marbella.

CCTV footage seen by police captured the horror moment the young woman was placed in a chokehold and rendered unconscious just as she was arriving to her hostel on Thursday night.

The suspect, a Moroccan man with several convictions, had happened to see the tourist walk past him in the port.

He then stalked her for over a kilometre, security cameras show, before launching his attack in the doorway of her hostel on Calle Princesa.

Policia Nacional immediately recognised the suspect on the security camera footage and arrested him at his home in Fuengirola by 6.30pm the following day.

Policia Nacional said the man is known to authorities and has previous convictions.

The tourist has already flown back to her country following the ordeal.

Police said she thanked officers for their rapid response.

The young tourist was visiting Spain from Hungary, reports Malaga Hoy.
