Two men, aged 53 and 23, have been arrested by the National Police in Alicante in connection with the suspected sexual abuse of a 15-year-old boy. One of the individuals ran an internet forum by which he befriended the teenager, and met him in secluded places around the area including a deserted building in San Vicente del Raspeig. He then got a second man involved to indulge in sadomasochistic sexual acts with the child.
The National Police said that the forum manager sent thousands of messages to the youngster in order to build up trust in him, and to convince the boy to meet other men. The teenager told his parents what happened in November with the authorities launching an investigation.
