MÁLAGA – Police in Málaga arrested three men on Monday for sexually abusing a woman in Málaga’s Malagueta beach district. 

A witness reported to 091 that a woman was sexually assaulted in the La Malagueta zone, between the historic centre and the sea. Furthermore, the events took place from the night of Sunday to Monday. Then in the early hours of Monday, a call came in at the number 091 of the National Police. The witness warned that a woman was raped on Malagueta beach in Malaga. 

Caught in the act 

The officers arrived on the scene and surprised the three men at the time of their assault. Moreover, according to the National Police, the woman had already been raped by one of the three men. Furthermore, those men would have taken advantage of the fact that the woman was drunk. Therefore, thanks to the early reporting of the witness, this prevented the other two men from also assaulting the victim.
