A 36-YEAR-OLD personal trainer has been taken into custody in Alicante, accused of six counts of sexual abuse.
His alleged victims are all female, three of which are minors aged 13, 15 and 17. The detainee, of Spanish nationality, groomed his victims at a gym in Busot, offering them personal training sessions.
He then convinced the girls to meet him at his house, where he recommended they receive a 20 minute sports massage before taking the opportunity to abuse them.
In one case, a 26-year-old woman was lured to his home on the promise of a job with an alleged friend. When he tried to give her one of his massages, she put up a fight and left.
The 13-year-old victim said that the man tried anything to keep seeing her, even making friends with her parents, and added that she had to block him from her phone due to his persistence.
The Guardia Civil has revealed that he was finally arrested after a 17-year-old girl “bravely came forward.”
