Spanish authorities are searching for two men “of Arabic origin” in connection with the rape of a 28-year-old Irish male tourist on the last night of his stay in Valencia.

The assault reportedly took place in the early hours of June 18. The victim, who had been partying with a friend in the vibrant El Carmen area of the city, agreed to leave with the two men.

As they walked along the Túria river, the attackers tore the man’s clothes and sexually assaulted him.

The victim took himself to Valencia’s La Fe hospital where a doctor examined his injuries sustained and confirmed they were consistent with rape.

According to a description given to authorities by the victim, the men were “of Arabic origin” and spoke English “with a French accent.”

National Police in Valencia are yet to comment publicly on the attack, and news of the assault has only just been made public.

No arrests are believed to have yet been made.
