Three men were arrested by the Almeria Civil Guard Command as suspected perpetrators in a sexual assault that took place on May 21st in San Juan de los Terreros' Pulpilena neighbourhood.
According to the armed institute, the investigators conducted a "complex operation to clarify facts" starting from the beginning. They performed a thorough ocular examination to identify and collect evidence that could relate to the victim's sexual assault.
The investigation was developed and allowed for the first identification and arrests of one author and then the location and arrests of two others involved in the events.
The Benemerita pointed out that the investigation remains open and that the proceedings were declared secret by the court authority. The Court of First Instance will bring the persons arrested in the dungeons to the Court of First Instance. Instruction Number 2 of Huercal-Overa will follow on Monday.
The Civil Guard of Almeria opened an investigation through the Judicial Police last Saturday night into a complaint of gang rape perpetrated by three men against a woman of foreign nationality, aged 30, in San Juan de los Terreros' Pulpilena District.
The 112 Andalusia Emergency Service received an anonymous call at 9:05 on Saturday. He informed them that a girl was found in Pisuegra Street, near the breakwater, and that she had been sexually assaulted by three men.
The coordinating center immediately notified the Civil Guard as well as the Pulpi Local Police. The agents arrived at the victim's home and met her to file a complaint about some of the events that occurred in the afternoon.
The Benemerita agents then transferred the woman (whose details were not known) to La Inmaculada De Huercal-Overa Hospital. There, health professionals performed an examination to determine the extent of the damage.
According to initial reports, the Latin American woman, who was being treated by the Local Police and Civil Guard, knew the alleged aggressors several hours before the events. She had argued with her companion while she was visiting the town.
Later, they offered to take her to her accommodation. It was then that they sexually assaulted and abandoned her following the events on the streets.
