The Guardia Civil of Almeria arrests a man for sexual assault in Pulpí

The detainee approached the victim in the early hours of the morning, put her in his car and took her to an isolated area where he sexually assaulted her.

The Guardia Civil of Almeria in collaboration with the Local Police of Pulpí, has arrested a 43 year old man who is accused of committing a crime of sexual assault. The victim is a young woman who was assaulted by the aggressor when she was walking to work in the early hours of the morning.

The events occurred on 17 July. The detainee was driving a vehicle from inside which he began to interrogate the victim about where he was going, offering to accompany her and insisting over and over again that she get into his car.

The young woman repeatedly asked the detainee to leave her alone, but at one point the perpetrator got out of the car, assaulted her from behind and pushed her violently into the car. He then hit her in the stomach and other parts of her body, and the victim was left immobile, unable to react.

The perpetrator started to drive away and took her at high speed to an isolated area of the municipality of Pulpileño, where the victim tried to flee, but the assailant hit her again and threatened to kill her. Taking advantage of the fact that the young woman was totally defenceless, the detainee sexually assaulted her with great violence.

Later, while still being held by the perpetrator, the victim managed to free herself and tried to run away from the scene. The aggressor pursued her, but, just as he was about to catch up with her, the young woman was able to be helped by a person walking along a nearby road. At that moment, the detainee fled from the scene.

The Territorial Judicial Police Team of the Guardia Civil, responsible for the investigation, began the first enquiries and established a joint device with several patrols of the Guardia Civil from different Units and the Local Police of Pulpí to locate the perpetrator of the facts. By means of an intense investigation concentrated in a few hours in which all possible information was gathered, both from the testimonies of the victim and the person who helped her, as well as from the place where the aggression was committed, it was possible to quickly locate the perpetrator. The aggressor, on seeing the police presence, tried to flee in the same vehicle in which he committed the aggression and was finally arrested.

As a result of this investigation, a 43-year-old man has been arrested for the crimes of sexual assault, injuries, illegal detention and against traffic safety as he does not have a driving licence.

The proceedings, together with the perpetrator, were handed over to the Juzgado de Primera Instancia e Instrucción number 3 of Huércal Overa, on duty, which ordered his imprisonment.
