GUARDIA CIVIL officers from Alicante have arrested a man in Malaga in connection with sexual offences on a 13-year-old girl in Torrevieja at the end of June.
The Argentine national aged 44, originally made contact with the girl via a social network and where he managed to gain her trust over a period of time.
The girl was allegedly threatened with rape if she didn’t send the man intimate photographs of herself (which she refused to do)… a threat that almost came true after he made the journey from Malaga to Torrevieja where he rented an apartment just for one day.
It was only after the man threatened to publish her other photographs online that the naive and frightened girl agreed to meet the man in Torrevieja. They went by bus to the apartment where he allegedly sexually assaulted her. As soon as she left the building after her ordeal, she went to a nearby bar and raised the alarm.
During the man’s arrest, the Guardia Civil found enough evidence to verify that this was the same man in Torrevieja on the day in question.
They are also checking mobile phones they found to see if similar crimes have taken place.
