Igualada rape victim’s DNA found in detainee’s home

Mossos d’Esquadra found the remains of the DNA of a minor who was raped in the early morning of November 1 in Igualada (Barcelona) in the detainee’s house, which was confirmed by the head of the Catalan police, Josep Maria Estela.

In an interview with RAC-1, Estela expressed “tremendous satisfaction” with the discovery of the DNA, a key step in the five-month-long investigation that the Mossoes have been investigating, culminating in the arrest of a suspect last Thursday. a 21-year-old resident of Igualada was involved in the attack. The judge, who charges the detainee with sexual offenses and attempted murder, sent the young man to a temporary prison last Saturday.

The Mossos d’Esquadra, after five months of complex investigation, arrested the suspect at dawn last Thursday and ransacked his home in the center of Igualada for more than six hours.

Investigators started almost from scratch: the victim remembered almost nothing due to multiple injuries inflicted by the attackers not only of a sexual nature, but also as a result of beating with a metal rod.

The Central Sexual Assault Investigation Unit (UCAS) Mossos d’Esquadra, attached to the Criminal Investigation Division, reviewed the contents of security cameras around the Epic nightclub, where the young woman was with friends, and from the Les Comes training ground, where a truck driver found her unconscious with severe head trauma after sexual assault.

Employees of the Central Department for Combating Sexual Violence, who have been in constant contact with the victim and her family all these months, went to the girl’s house early Thursday morning to personally notify her that they were going to arrest the suspect. This is one of the goals of UCAS, a police unit created with a dual mission: to investigate this type of aggression and, at the same time, to accompany the victims in this complex process, often leading to re-victimization.

After the sexual assault, the girl remained in the hospital for more than a month after suffering a severe head injury, hearing loss in one ear, and several internal tears that left significant consequences. After more than five surgeries, the minor is still undergoing treatment, to the point that a few days ago she had to be re-hospitalized at the Sant Joan de Déu hospital in Barcelona due to the effects of injuries sustained during sexual intercourse. attack. .
