Following complaints that a man had appeared naked on several occasions in recent weeks along La Rambla, Pilar de la Horadada, a plainclothes officer arrested a 41 year old Briton on suspicion of a crime of exhibitionism.
He was reported as having revealed himself to women who were either playing sports or walking along La Rambla. According to reports he also approached and shouted at them.
The man appeared from behind water drainage pipes in an area located between the N-332 and Torre del Pilar, a place known as las ovejas de Carrasco (Carrasco’s sheep), in a state of undress. However, following his arrest, at which time he was clothed, he was immediately released because the Local Police did not have a specific complaint of his behaviour and the crime of exhibitionism can only be made if it is carried out in front of minors.
The man alleged to the agents that he was “naturist” which was the reason why he walked naked at night.
The incident has caused alarm among the dozens of users of this popular route, some three kilometres in length, many of who also lament the lack of lighting in the area!
