"if you are capable of 'dogging', you must be able to defend yourself"
, "if you had been raped, you would come hysterical, pulling your hair out and much more affected" or "your narration of the events It's not credible. Where do you have the purples that show you've been forced? "
were some of the phrases that the police officers snapped at him.
Faced with the impossibility of filing the complaint, the young woman returned home, but when her mother found out what had happened, she accompanied her to the Calella Hospital (Barcelona), where they did tests for sexual transmission and a patrol took a statement.
