Teenage victim was being threatened with a knife by her adult boyfriend

Orihuela Town Hall has approved a proposal to publicly congratulate four Local Police officers for their actions in the recent arrest of a man for a gender violence offence against a teenage girl.

Officers Oliverio Riquelme Moreno, Rubén Espadiña Fernández, Cristian Morales Sánchez and Juan Ramón Rama intervened on March 24th when the man was threatening the underage girl with a large knife.

He had forced her to go to his house at knifepoint but the officers managed to separate the couple and found the knife hidden in the man’s clothing.
