Brit girl, 17, 'attacked by predator who tried to rape her outside nightclub on Tenerife holiday'

A BRIT teen has allegedly been attacked by a predator, who tried to rape her outside a nightclub while she was holidaying in Tenerife.

Police have arrested a Moroccan man accused of trying to sexually assault the 17-year-old.

Respected island paper El Dia said police arrested the man after being handed video footage of the attempted sexual assault by youngsters who raised the alarm.

The alleged attack is said to have occurred near a well-known nightclub in a party area of the resort of Playa de las Americas known as Las Veronicas.

The Brit, thought to be on holiday in Tenerife, gave a police statement hours later.

The detainee, a 43-year-old believed to live on the island, has not been named.

Police were not available for comment early this morning.

It was not immediately clear if the suspect had been remanded in custody following a court appearance, or has been released on bail pending an ongoing criminal probe.

Las Veronicas is a well-known strip of clubs and bars by the sea front with nightspots which are open until around 5am.
