Judicial agents have detained a man who characterized himself as an astrologer and someone who can intercede with God to make life more pleasant.
Agents picked the man up Tuesday at his place of business, the Plaza de la Cultura. He faces two allegations of fraud and one of rape.
The victims are women he met in the plaza, said the Judicial Investigating Organization. The fraud allegation is that he claimed he could eliminate negative vibrations from the lives of the women. One women paid 400,000 colons for this service, about $720.
The rape took place during a session to eliminate vibrations, said the judicial agency.
