Limerick man held over sex attack

A 32 year old Limerick man is in the custody of Spanish police following an alleged sex attack in Costa del Sol town of Malaga last week.

The Independent reported Saturday that a Limerick man was arrested after a local woman told police that a man tried to strangle her after sexually assaulting her in a lift.

The 45-year-old Spaniard was on her way to work when the alleged attack happened, on Wednesday morning, in Malaga, on the Costa del Sol.

She told police a man followed her into the lift as she headed to the legal firm
where she works.

He grabbed her by the neck and indecently assaulted her. Colleagues heard her cries as the lift reached the third floor of the city centre building -- and raced out to find a man trying to strangle her with one hand and stifling her screams with the other.

A police patrol arrived minutes later, and took an Irishman away in handcuffs. The alleged victim told investigators she had never seen her attacker before. He was in custody last night pending a court appearance.

At the hearing, which was closed to the public and the media, the man, named as Jeffrey Michael O’Shaughnessy was remanded in custody to appear again at a Malaga court on a later date.

A police official told the media,
”A 32-year-old Irishman is currently being held in custody on suspicion of indecent assault and attempted murder."
