• Courts The Igualada rapist could face 45 years in prison for a "particularly degrading" assault

Shortly after arriving in Spain from

Bolivia

in 2014,

Brian Raimundo CM

, when he was still a minor, tried to rape his seven-year-old stepsister.

Five years

after those events, his mother, who had thrown him out of the house, denounced him and that is why the Girona Juvenile Court imposed a one-year sentence on him in 2020 for a crime of attempted sexual assault.

However, lacking records, the court decided to suspend this sentence for two years on the condition that the suspect undergo

psychiatric treatment

and another detoxification during the year of probation imposed on him, in addition to a restraining order regarding the victim.

The execution file does not include any incidence of Brian Raimundo CM during his execution.

The supervised release sentence ended a few months before he allegedly attacked a minor outside the Epic nightclub in

Igualada

on the night of last November 1 and raped her in addition to brutally assaulting her with an iron bar.

The

Mossos d'Esquadra

knew this background of the main suspect of a sexual assault and an attempted murder.

Once identified thanks to several security cameras, such as the one used to discover a group of people who had damaged a vehicle in an area

near the nightclub

, the agents triangulated the repeaters with the suspect's signals to discover that he had been in the polygon where the events took place.

In the security images he appears following the victim, but with the hood on, which made it difficult to identify him.

Before his arrest, the Mossos discovered his background such as this conviction from a juvenile court in addition to another alleged mistreatment of his then-partner.

Precisely, the agents suspect that he gave her part of the clothes that he stole from the victim of the rape in Igualada.

One of the

definitive pieces of evidence against him is the DNA

of the minor found on her clothes in the room of her flat in Igualada, registered by the police, as well as the hooded sweatshirt she was wearing the night of the attack and which could be the same as the that appears in the images.

It is clear that the psychiatric treatment ordered by a court after the attempted attack on his stepsister supposedly did not serve to prevent a new attack.

Now, he is still in provisional prison pending the conclusion of the investigation by a court in Igualada.
