A 31-year-old Almuñécar man has been arrested, accused of exposing himself to a child in the street. The Guardia Civil posted vehicles on all the exit roads of the town following the incident, including some rural lanes in a hastily put together operation to catch the alleged sex offender.
The full details of the offence were obtained by the Guardia from the father of the girl, who is just 12-years-old and lives in the town.
The report was filed at the Almuñécar Guardia Civil station and included a detailed description of the man and his clothing. The report claimed that the girl noticed that she was being followed by a man who was trying to attract her attention. When she looked directly at the man, she realised that he was exposing himself. He then stood in front of her and started to masturbate. The girl ran directly home and told her parents what had happened.
With the information and description from the report, the Guardia kept their vehicles in place on the exits from the town whilst other officers searched for the offender. They then detained the accused, who matched the description given.
It is reported that the man has no previous sexual offences to his name. He is being held in custody in Almuñécar pending further investigation.
