Three arrested on suspicion of child exploitation

Police have detained two women and one man, all Romanian nationals, in Torre del Mar on suspicion of exploiting a minor.

Preliminary investigations suggest that the minor was brought to Torre del Mar each day in a car and was deposited outside a supermarket. The girl then spent the whole day begging outside the establishment until, at closing time, she was picked up by the same car.

The two individuals with the car were identified and subsequently arrested on suspicion of exploitation of a minor. A third person, a woman, was also arrested after it was found that she exercised guardianship over the minor as her biological parents are in Romania.
