A Swedish national has been detained in La Cala, Mijas, for assaulting his girlfriend on the street.
Police were called and notified of an assault taking place on the street and arrived to find the woman inside a vehicle and a man standing by the window. The woman showed signs of bruising and was bleeding from the nose.
The woman at first denied that she had been assaulted but then later admitted there had been an argument and that it was not the first time she had been beaten. However, she refused to make an official complaint.
