The Guàrdia Urbana de Badalona has arrested seven men accused of having sexually assaulted a woman in an apartment in the Llefià neighborhood. The events took place this Thursday morning, at around 5:30 a.m., according to municipal sources detailed to the Catalan Agency for Notícies (ACN).
At that time, the police came to the property after receiving a call from a neighbor complaining that he heard a lot of noise on one floor of the building. Upon arrival, the officers found the victim on the ground, in a state of shock.
The woman has been transferred to the hospital while the seven detainees remain in police stations. All, both the victim and the aggressors, are of legal age.
A few hours after the events, the mayor of Badalona, Xavier García Albiol, explained the arrest on his profile on the social network Twitter, where he labeled the alleged aggressors as “savages.”
