The Mossos d'Esquadra have arrested a 16-year-old minor on Friday for sexually abusing six octogenarians in Olot (Girona). Between August 7 and October 10 the child had sexually assaulted one of the elderly women and abused five others, the oldest of whom was 88 years old. The modus operandi the young man went through to approach the old ladies down the street when it got dark. Then he cornered them against a wall, touched them and forced them to watch him while he masturbated.
The first complaint was filed on August 7. On that occasion an old woman, who according to sources close to the investigation had exercised prostitute years ago, denounced that in principle it was a consensual sexual encounter, but at a certain moment refused to continue and the child forced it. The investigation unit of the Mossos d'Esquadra de Olot initiated the search of the suspect with the details given by the victim. On August 29, another woman reported that a minor had approached her in the street that afternoon.
On September 16, 19 and 26, three new cases occurred in Plaça de la Lliça, Sant Cristòfol Street and Girona Avenue. All the victims, over 60 years old, reported that a young man had approached them between six and eight in the afternoon. The modus operandi and the description of the young person detailed by the victims coincided in all cases, so the investigators suspected that it was the same individual, so they set up a device to identify and arrest him.
In October he again sexually abused another old woman. Then, the agents of the Criminal Investigation Area (AIC) of Girona took charge of the investigation and this Friday they detained the suspect in the middle of a street in Olot, as presumed author of half a dozen crimes against sexual freedom, a sexual assault and five sexual abuse. The minor has given a statement and has been released pending the summons of the Juvenile Prosecutor's Office of Girona.
