Police arrested a teacher late Tuesday morning at the secondary school where he works near Puntarenas. He is suspected of raping a minor who lives nearby and attends classes at the same school.
A police spokesperson confirmed that the man is 47-year-old Carlos Luis Quiros Gómez and that the 15-year-old girl, with whom he is accused of forcibly having sexual contact, did not want the relationship.
A bulletin from the Judicial Investigating Organization says that Quiros lived close to the victim and was friends with the family. The bulletin added that on one occasion he used this relationship to go to the victim’s house where he forced himself on her.
