The Guardia Civil of the Region of Murcia has arrested a driving instructor for alleged sexual abuse in San Pedro del Pinatar.
The investigation began when a young woman reported to the Guardia Civil that she had been subjected to touching and sexual comments by a driving school instructor while she was doing driving practice, according to sources from the Armed Forces.
As a result of this first complaint, investigators from the Benemérita contacted the company for which the person complained of was working, which enabled them to find out his identity.
In addition, the agents obtained information about other students who had also done driving lessons with the same teacher during the last year, which allowed them to locate three other young women who reported similar incidents.
Apparently, the ‘modus operandi’ consisted of holding conversations with his students until he gained their trust. These conversations, in some cases, became sexual in nature, and continued with unnecessary movements to encourage unnecessary rubbing and touching in intimate areas.
Once the necessary evidence was obtained, the Guardia Civil arrested a 48-year-old Spanish man from San Javier as the alleged perpetrator of four crimes of sexual abuse.
The detainee and the proceedings have been handed over to the Court of Instruction of San Javier (Murcia).
