The suspect was driving a yellow car, which he used to pose as a taxi driver, and he patrolled past the universities in search of his victims. Panama’s Auxiliary Prosecutor Angel Calderon said the detainee intimidated the girls with a knife, robbed of their cellphones, jewelry, cash, and then sexually abused them. The investigation revealed that Lay Castillo took photos of the girls, and filmed them during the rapes, and then later threatened to disseminate the photos and videos via the Internet. Calderon said the rapes were not committed by a gang, but rather by this one isolated individual who committed his crimes in taxis.

Guatemalan police officer arrested on charges of holding 14-year-old girl as a sex slave

Guatemala, August 2012

A Guatemalan police officer was arrested on charges of holding a 14-year-old girl as a sex slave for months, authorities said Friday.

Marvin Florian, 40, was taken into custody on Thursday by personnel from the internal affairs unit, the national police said in a statement.

The officer, who is accused of rape and torture, paid off the girl’s mother to keep quiet about the arrangement, according to the statement.

Florian was detained at a police precinct in a poor Guatemala City neighborhood, near the residence where he kept the girl prisoner for a year.

Authorities should investigate the possibility that Florian has been involved in other instances of “sexual slavery,” Alba Trejo, presidential commissioner for crimes against women, told the press.

Minors were the victims in nearly two-thirds of the 318 reports of sexual violence filed with police so far this year, the Guatemalan human rights office said.
