The Police have arrested eight people for sexually harassing minors over the Internet. You are scattered throughout Spain, from Tenerife to Tarragona, but all of them had in common one of their victims: a 13-year-old girl of whom they had uploaded photographs to the network.
The arrests have taken place in Tenerife, Tarragona, Ciudad Real, Badajoz, Madrid and Valencia. In this last there have been three of the eight arrests.
Several of the detainees had contacted the 13-year-old to get more photographs and even to meet in person with her. At least one of them managed to sexually abuse the young woman, who lives a few kilometers from his home, and in fact, he has been arrested twice during the police investigation.
The investigation was initiated thanks to the information received through the email denunciaciones.pornografí[email protected]ía.es that the National Police makes available to citizens so that they can communicate, always anonymously, the allegedly criminal events or situations that endanger the minor in the use of new technologies.
The case started in April 2017 when the agents received a message in which a mother alerted her daughter’s contact, through a well-known social network, with a person who claimed to have a modeling agency. The agents verified the existence of an account in which a well-known brand of feminine lingerie was advertised in search of girls, minors, who wanted to practice this profession.
This offer was repeated on different social networks. Investigating the origin of these announcements, the police located a suspect, a resident of the community of Madrid, with numerous antecedents and managed to locate a total of eight victims, in different Spanish provinces, between 12 and 16 years of age.
