A 13-year-old girl tested positive for liquid ecstasy after feeling a bite on her leg during a pilgrimage to Asturias in Spain. The number of such attacks in the country is on the rise, creating fears of sexual violence.
The girl felt a bite on her leg during festivities with her parents and friends, near the town of Mandeville, in the Spanish municipality of Gijón in Asturias. According to the Spanish press, the victim began to feel dizzy and drowsy and was taken to a hospital in Cabueñes with a numb leg, where medical tests revealed a positive test for liquid ecstasy. According to “La Voz de Galicia”, the girl is in stable condition and the family has already filed a complaint.
The child was a few meters away from his parents and with a group of 50-year-old men when he was attacked, writes the Spanish newspaper “ABC”. No suspects have been arrested yet.
This type of chemical submission is used by sex offenders around the world, and after being in the news in previous years in other European countries such as France and the United Kingdom, it has now worried Spanish authorities.
In recent weeks, the number of complaints from women claiming to have been injected by strangers at parties or gatherings has risen in Spain. As reported on Wednesday by J.N, the country’s authorities have already registered 23 cases in Catalonia, mainly in Lloret de Mar and Barcelona, and 12 in the Basque Country. The reports of the victims are the same: when they are at a party, they feel a sting in their arm or leg, then faint or sleepy; There is an imprint of a syringe needle on the skin. None of these reported cases were confirmed to have been submitted to drug preparation and the explanation may be due to lack of depth of bite.
