SPANISH police have launched an unprecedented manhunt to arrest a Madrid paedophile. Spanish law enforcement officials have launched a manhunt to identify and arrest a man who reportedly kidnapped and sexually abused a seven-year-old girl last Friday in Hortaleza and set her free 45 minutes later on Calle Canillejas.
The police believe it could be the same paedophile who kidnapped two girls in Ciudad Lineal on April 10 and June 17 and later abandoned them on the street.
The recent kidnappings have struck fear into the hearts of Ciudad Lineal and Hortaleza parents. “I will kill him with my own hands if I see him approach my little girl. I would take justice in my own hands,” said a concerned father. “People are terrified. I will not let my daughter out my sight for a second,” said a mother who has worried herself sick.
The paedophile is alleged to have kidnapped a six-year-old Chinese girl on Calle Luis Ruiz and a nine-year-old on Parque San Juan Bautista. The victims were later found abandoned on nearby streets. It is believed the paedophile takes them to his residence where he drugs them and gives them baths.
Unable to identify the paedophile and kidnapper, Spanish police have been waiting for a break in the case. Now investigators may finally have found the clue they were hoping for.
A witness provided police with a description of the man believed to have kidnapped the seven-year-old Dominican girl. The witness said he is strongly-built, between 35 and 40 years of age, almost blonde and 1.75 metres tall.
“I could clearly see the kidnapper and the girl walking behind him,” said the woman. “I saw the girl getting out of the car. His hair was very short and almost blond. The girl was following him and none of them was saying anything,” she added.
The Dominican girl was kidnapped last Friday at 6.30pm between Calle Torquemada and Calle Tribaldos when her grandparents were not looking.
The police are trying to determine if it is the same paedophile or simply a copycat.
