A man working as a security guard in Ankara has been arrested for sexually abusing a German diplomat’s 15-year-old daughter, Hurriyet Daily News reports, citing Habertuk.
The incident reportedly occurred on June 15 at around 7:30 am in Ankara’s Gaziosmanpaşa district as the German diplomat’s daughter, K, was waiting for her school bus to arrive. At the same time, a man later identified to be a security guard, Onur O., approached the girl and spoke to her.
Uncomfortable with what was said, K departed the scene and began to wait for her bus in another spot. Onur O, however, again approached the girl and sexually harassed her once again. The man subsequently ran away from the scene due to K’s reaction.
After the girl boarded the bus a short while later, she related what she had experienced, prompting the service to return to the area in an unsuccessful effort to apprehend the suspect.
“As I was waiting for the school bus, the individual at the bus stop told me something. I told him that I did not understand. Then upon the arrival of the school service, [he] approached me from behind and touched me. Then he ran away,” the girl was quoted as saying by the daily.
Police launched an investigation and analyzed city surveillance cameras nearby, identifying the suspect as a security guard working at the Dutch Embassy. Onur O. was subsequently detained at his home in Ankara’s Yenimahalle district.
Following his testimony at the police station, Onur O. was taken to the Ankara court where he was arrested on charges of the “sexual assault of a child.”
