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.
