Attempted rape thwarted
On Sunday morning an off-duty National Police officer made sure that two men who had presumably tried to rape a 22-year-old holidaymaker, were arrested. At around 8am, the police officer and another person saw a young woman wrestling with two men in a scrub in front of the Metrópolis shopping centre and the beach. She managed to free herself, run onto the street and call for help. The two suspected assailants fled. The National Police officer and his companion took up the pursuit and they succeeded in trapping the two men aged 29 and 35 years from the Maghreb.
