Sexual assault sparks security concerns in Torremolinos

TERRORMOLINOS: More needs to be done to tackle criminals ©PSOE Torremolinos/Twitter

THE sexual assault committed two weeks ago, for which a young man was arrested, has reignited concerns about security in La Nogalera.

Residents and businesses are demanding that more action is taken, and would like to see a greater police presence on the streets.

This popular area of Torremolinos has a layout that is believed to attract criminals, with narrow alleyways surrounding many of the bars and clubs.

A number of bar owners in the area are calling for more police support at closing time, while the spate of robberies has also left the public on guard.

A network of security cameras has been proposed by several businessmen, but this is still being considered.

Another problem appears to be the lack of complaints to police filed by victims after attacks, due to fear of the aggressors.
