A BRITISH resident of Coin, Malaga, aged 57, has been arrested by Guardia Civil for the alleged sexual abuse of his partner’s daughter.
He was identified by Guardia Civil in the small town of Villamediana de Iregua, La Rioja, in central Spain, when he went to the local station to report that his partner and her daughter were missing on March 25.
When the officers took his details and consulted their databases, they found that there was a search and arrest warrant against him based on a complaint lodged two days earlier with the Guardia Civil in Coin, for the alleged sexual abuse of the underage daughter of his girlfriend.
He was arrested and taken into custody.

Real Name – Russell Lear from Nottingham, UK
Was married to a relative of mine years ago, resided in Fuengirola, CDS where he ran a restaurant called Cafe Indulgence in Torreblanca and ran away after stealing tens of thousands of euros from my family.
“Partner and Daughter” – Mum is a Liverpudlian expat named Janine. She was also guilty of theft at the time.
Was reported to Guardia Civil then – 2016 NOTHING was done!
Man already had convicted history of being a sex offender in the UK, police were told, again nothing was done – at this point they had him, my family and me in physical custody and he was living less than 5 mins from the local station – they didn’t think he was a serious threat, let him go and he ran away to Coin that night where he remained hidden for just over 5 years.
This could have been avoided but alas, he is where he deserves to be – hope he gets just desserts in Spanish jail.
Tried leaving a review here earlier, am curious why you dont want to publish his real name?
Was genuine, I lived with the man for 4 years.
I have photos with him and he was living in Coin for 6 years even though the police knew all about his history.
