On Halloween night an 11-year-old girl had a narrow escape in Nerja after being accosted by a young male in the centre of town. She described her assailant as tall, fair haired and thin, who wore a baseball cap and a scarf to hid his face.
The incident took place near Urbanización Capistrano on a street near her house. She was with a group of friends when the man approached and started to fondle her in front of them.
As a result of the incident, she was taken to the area hospital in Vélez-Málaga, where she had a physical and psychological check up.
So far, no arrest has been made probably because on that night so many people, most of whom were youngsters, had been out in disguises for the event.
Obviously, the incident caused quite a stir in Nerja and on social media.
