Two arrested for raping a teenager in Mérida

Two men were arrested on Tuesday July 30th, accused of raping a minor who worked with them as an assistant.

According to the police report, the child, who was under 13 years of age, was raped by his employer Eugenio L.D.R., 52, and co-worker, Lázaro C.G., 24. The events occurred in a pet food store located in Colonia Plan de Ayala.

The teenager would have been raped at least four times and then threatened not to tell anbody.

Finally the boy decided to narrate what happened to his mother, who showed up on Tuesday July 30th at the business to confront the alleged aggressors.

Although they both denied the accusations, they closed down the store and escaped aboard a Jetta vehicle with ZBJ783A Yucatan license plates. However, the woman immediately called 911 and gave notice to the SSP, so the men were arrested not far from the crime scene, in a property known as Quinta Tzalam.
