BRIT WOMAN’S TAXI SEX ATTACK ORDEAL ON COSTA DEL SOL RESORT
A BRIT has been raped by a taxi driver in the upmarket Costa del Sol resort of Puerto Banus.
The distressed female holidaymaker told officers the man forced himself on her after taking her to waste ground, instead of dropping her at a hotel.
She took the cab after deciding to leave friends she was out partying with and return to the unnamed hotel around 4am on Sunday.
It comes just a day after a 19-year-old Scottish woman was gang-raped by one of her friends and two of his mates on a beach in Magaluf at 1am on Saturday.
The latest victim has been unable to give police a proper description of the man she says raped her, or any detailed information about the car he was driving – including his taxi number.
She alerted detectives after being abandoned in a street near her hotel.
Police have so far revealed few details about their ongoing investigation, although sources described the holidaymaker as British and said she was in her twenties.
She is thought to have flown back home since reporting the incident while police continue their hunt for the suspect.
Police insiders said they are taking her complaint “very seriously” and have described her as being in a “state of shock” when she informed them what had happened.
No arrests have yet been made and it is understood the police investigation is being slowed down by the woman’s RESORT: Puerto Banus memory lapses, due to the alcohol she had consumed.
News of the Puerto Banus incident comes after a Scottish tourist reported being gang-raped by three men in the Majorcan party resort of Magaluf.
It emerged yesterday she had shown investigators a photo of one of her alleged attackers believed to have been on her mobile phone.
The teen told officers she agreed to go to a beach near the party strip of Punta Ballena with one of the men, but was raped by him and two others.
The alleged offenders are thought to be British.
