Beach rapist jailed in Spain


A 25-YEAR-OLD man has been jailed, pending trial, for allegedly raping a 37-year-old woman whom he had drugged on Nerja’s Burriana beach on the Costa del Sol.

Beach-goers called in police after noticing the man having sex with the woman on a sun lounger, seemingly against her will. Another 35-year-old man was said to be watching on and “waiting his turn”.

Officers quickly arrived and called for medical help for the woman, who “seemed intoxicated”. They pursued the two men who tried to escape in their car, which broke down. The pair then fled on foot and were caught by officers in a matter of minutes.

Interviewing the woman, police found she had travelled from Granada with the two men, and cannot remember anything after getting into the car. This led officers to believe she could have been given date-rape drug “burundanga”, also known as the “devil’s breath drug”. They are now carrying out tests to see whether she had been given the narcotic, which puts users into a “zombie-like” trance.

The alleged rapist man, known only as J.A.A., was found to already have a criminal record and was remanded in custody. He now faces four to ten years in prison for penetrative sexual assault. The other man, known as J.L.M.S., was released on the condition he returns for questioning when required.
