A 16-year-old boy has been arrested for allegedly rap!ng his own mother on the holiday island of Gran Canaria. The suspect teenager has been remanded to a secure young offenders’ institution pending an ongoing criminal investigation led by a judge at a youth court in the capital Las Palmas. Yesterday, June 17, 2021, the police confirmed that they had held the young man on Tuesday evening. His mother is understood to be the one to have alerted the authorities.
Unconfirmed local reports said the teenager is claiming he remembers nothing about the alleged s3xual attack because he was under the effects of drugs at that time. He spent his first night in custody at a centre called La Montaneta in Gran Canaria. However, he is set to be taken to a secure young offenders’ institution called Valle Tabares on the neighbouring island of Tenerife in the coming hours.
Canarias Seven, the local newspaper which first reported on the shocking case, revealed that the unnamed teenager has been put on a suicide watch. His nationality has also not been revealed. A spokesman for Spain’s National Police force in the Gran Canaria capital Las Palmas confirmed that: “A teenage minor has been arrested on suspicion of rap£. “The arrest took place late on Tuesday.” A well-placed source added: “The alleged victim is the boy’s mum. She alerted police.”
A youth court in Las Palmas has confirmed an underage boy suspected of committing a serious s3xual assault was remanded to a secure youth detention centre on Wednesday, June 16. The rap£ is understood to have happened at a property in the Gran Canaria capital Las Palmas.
