Two arrested for sexually assaulting a woman in Barcelona

The Barcelona Urban Guard detained two men on Tuesday for allegedly having sexually assaulted a woman in a private apartment. The events took place at dawn in the flat of the man she had been with, in the Ciutat Vella district.

The Barcelona municipal police have reported that the victim was going to meet a person that night, but two other men were in that house, who were allegedly the perpetrators of the attack. According to a woman, they did not let her leave the apartment, but she was able to call the police, who went to the apartment and detained them.

In addition to an alleged crime of sexual assault, the two detainees are accused by the police of coercion. “If you have suffered it or suspect it, act,” the Guàrdia Urbana reported on its Twitter account on Wednesday.
