The two Moroccans, along with a third 35-year old suspect, were arrested in connection with the rape of a teenager in Bilbao, Spain.
Rabat – Spanish police have arrested three suspects, including two Moroccans, allegedly involved in the rape of a 17-year old girl on Monday in Bilbao, Spain.
The Moroccan suspects are aged 18 and 20, according to Spanish news outlet El Espanol.
Quoting security sources, the news outlet reported that the two Moroccans were arrested moments after the assault.
On Tuesday, June 25, the police arrested a 35-year old suspect, whose nationality has not been disclosed.
Investigations into the circumstances of the alleged rape case and the alleged involvement of the Moroccan suspects are still ongoing.
El Espanol said that the police are still looking for a fourth suspect.
The news outlet added that the Bilbao City Council has strongly condemned the assault against the teenager, expressing its “deepest indignation.”
Spanish law stipulates that the perpetrators of sexual assault face sentences of imprisonment from one to five years.
The offender, however; might receive a sentence ranging between six to twelve years in prison if the sexual assault consists of “vaginal, anal or oral penetration, or inserting body parts or objects into either of the former two orifices,” according to the Spanish Criminal Code, Article 179.
