A man has been accused of forcing a minor into prostitution against her will, using a private apartment on Finestrat to sell the “service”. It has been alleged that the 17-year-old went to see the man about renting a room, pretending she was over 18. When he learned that she was only 17, he is said to have detained her against her will and forced her into prostitution, sometimes for up to 12 hours a day.
The teenager’s mother raised the alarm and the Guardia Civil tracked her to the apartment on Cala Finestrat. A 44-year-old Spanish man has been charged with prostitution and corruption of a minor.
