Man tries to set wife on fire

In a new case of gender violence, a 38 year old man has been arrested in El Portil, Huelva, for allegedly dousing his partner with petrol and trying to set her alight.

Neighbours called the Guardia Civil after a heated argument began, during which time the alleged aggressor held a machete to his partner’s throat and doused her with petrol, intending to set her on fire.

The couple have two children. The woman had made no prior complaints of abuse despite, apparently, being subjected to continual threats. The alleged aggressor is being held in custody.
