British tourist in Tenerife rape attack: Moroccans arrested after woman saved by surfer

TWO Moroccans have been arrested after trying to rape a British tourist on a Tenerife beach.

The 25-year-old is accused of targeting the 74-year-old during a break-in at her apartment in an island holiday resort.

The immigrant, who was known to police, was identified as the suspect after being linked to the attack by his DNA.

The sickening attack happened around 11am on May 13 when the victim was alone in her apartment.

Investigators say she was forced into a bedroom and raped after the intruder found her inside the flat during the break-in.

The unnamed Brit, who was residing at the property in the municipality of Arona which includes the popular holiday resort of Playa de las Americas, was hospitalised for seven days afterwards.

A police source described the suspect as a drifter who was known to police from previous arrests but had never been accused of a serious sex crime.
