Local Police officer in Benalmádena arrested for alleged sexual abuse of minors

A restraining order has been issued by the courts, after the man was detained by the National Police on Saturday


Spain's National Police force has arrested a man, who is a local police officer in Benalmádena, for the alleged sexual abuse of two minors.

Inquiries began after the pair made the accusation and National Police investigators arrested the Local Police officer last Saturday. On Monday the courts issued a restraining order preventing him from contacting or approaching the minors.

National Police officers are working to determine if there could be more victims, and town hall sources have said the council is waiting to receive the crime file for their employee, who is currently on leave.
