The Spanish Police tries to corroborate the statements of the victim and witnesses, in addition to trying to locate the car of the assailants
In the early hours of Saturday, a 50-year-old Venezuelan woman was found in the town of Val do Dubra after being kidnapped and raped by unidentified assailants. The pilgrim was making the Camino de Santiago in the opposite direction, from Finisterre to Santiago de Compostela (where she had been summoned with relatives) when, having traveled between 15 and 20 km, she was assaulted and forcibly entered in a car by two assailants.
The vehicle traveled a distance that is still determined by the Civil Guard and after allegedly violating the assailants to the pilgrim (as reported by the victim), left without clothes in a field, despite the low temperatures resulting from the cold wave of these days. The victim came walking disoriented to a house in Val do Dubra to ask for help late at night, after which it was attended by neighbors, who alerted the authorities.
In these moments the Spanish Police is investigating the facts, analyzing the declarations and the data of the forensic, although still "nothing is clear" according to assure the authorities. For its part, the pilgrim is in psychiatric treatment, said Sunday the government delegate in Galicia, Santiago Villanueva, who stressed that despite incidents such as this Venezuelan pilgrim, crime on the Camino de Santiago is "practically insignificant".
