The accused allegedly asked the other two girls to remain in the doorway as he didn't want all of them inside at the same time.
Once alone with the victim, the 84-year-old allegedly started trying to kiss and abuse her. During the ensuing struggle, the girl managed to escape, and ran out into the street.
After returning home, the victim related the incident to her family. The girl's father immediately went to Local Police in Maria de la Salut and lodged a legal complaint against the elderly man. The girl had vividly remembered the address so the Police were able to make the arrest shortly afterwards. Until a court hearing is arranged, the girl's family have asked for a restrainining order against the alleged aggressor.
