Yesterday, four migrants were handcuffed in Puerto Rico, a town in the municipality of Mogán, Gran Canaria. The men of Maghreb origin are accused of raping a 36-year-old woman in a local park on Friday.
As reported by the newspaper La Provincia, the victim is an Irish national who has lived in the community with her family for years. After the incident, the woman first went to a health centre and filed a complaint on Sunday with the doctor’s report.
Thanks to the good personal description, all four men, who had recently come to Gran Canaria illegally on a boat, could be arrested during the course of yesterday (Monday). They had previously lived in tourist establishments in the municipalities of San Bartolomé de Tirajana and Mogán, but had been expelled from there. One of them was known to the police. He had already been convicted several times.
