Bigastro is a sleepy town – we like it that way! Only the scrapping between the political parties and petty crime disturbs the peace.
So when there is an incidence of serious crime, it makes the headlines in the local press. Such was the case on the 15th July 2006 when a woman was sexually assaulted at the Pedrera whilst she was attending a birthday party. The lady also had 100 euros and her mobile phone stolen.
The Public Prosecutor in Alicante has asked that the attacker be sent to gaol for 14 years with bail set at13,700 euros.
