ALICANTE - A 41-year-old British man suspected of committing 12 rapes in the United Kingdom was arrested on Thursday by police in the town of Orihuela, Alicante province. The man, who was subject to a European arrest warrant, did not put up any resistance when apprehended by the law enforcement officials.
The British citizen is now in Madrid awaiting extradition to the United Kingdom, where he will be tried for the alleged rape cases.
The detention of the British citizen was made possible after the police were informed that he lived in Orihuela or in a coastal neighbourhood nearby. The detention of the suspect was further aided by his occasional participation in a local radio programme aired in that part of Spain.
