Wanted British man arrested in Calpe


A 71-year-old British man has been arrested by National Police in Calpe, after a European arrest warrant was issued in 2017 in relation to crimes of child abuse. 


The man is accused of sexually abusing four children aged between seven and thirteen years old in the York area of the United Kingdom during the 1980’s. 


An investigation carried into the crimes by police in the UK led them to believe the man was residing in the Alicante region, and after the European arrest warrant was issued, Spanish National Police were able to identify the individual was residing in Calpe. 


He is due to be brought before the courts in Madrid for an order to be extradited to the UK.
