A 29-YEAR OLD man has been arrested for the alleged rape of his 12-year-old niece in Campos.
The incident came to light on November 14, after the man and young girl were left alone at the family home. The victim’s sister returned to the house by surprise, finding her uncle having sex with the young girl. It was then that he panicked, fleeing the scene before her parent’s returned home.
The girl’s parents immediately informed the Guardia Civil, taking their daughter to Manacor hospital where she underwent a gynaecological examination. Doctors confirmed that there were signs of sexual abuse.
Officers then began looking for the man but were unable to locate him. However, on Friday morning, the man surrendered to the Guardia Civil in Palma where he was arrested and charged with the rape and sexual abuse of a minor.
