Madrid (EFE) method of chemical submission with powerful drugs that incapacitated them for up to eight hours.
At least six similar acts are attributed to the gang, among which the one they committed against a man they came to rape stands out. All the victims were of homosexual orientation and people who lived alone, according to what sources of the investigation have informed EFE on Monday.
Three of those arrested, of Colombian nationality, were detained last week at the Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas airport when they were preparing to catch a flight to return to their country of origin, while the Police Headquarters of A Coruña collaborated in the arrest of the fourth member of the organized group.
They are accused of the crimes of robbery with violence at home, against public health, fraud, documentary falsification, injuries and sexual assault with penetration.
Provisionally released those arrested in Madrid from the Grindr band
The three arrested in Madrid were provisionally released by order of two magistrates from two Investigating Courts in the capital, something that is “incomprehensible” for the sources consulted by EFE, who highlight the “obvious” risk of flight since they were arrested when They wanted to leave the country.
Investigators from the Hortaleza-Barajas National Police Station clarified the facts in record time, since the gang had arrived in Madrid at the beginning of February and knew that they had bought their return tickets by the middle of the month.
His “modus operandi” was similar in all cases. One of the members of the group was in charge of going to the arranged meeting at the victim’s home – they previously made sure that they lived alone – through applications such as Grindr or Tinder.
Once there, he supplied him with various incapacitating drugs, which he took advantage of to steal money or other valuables and, in one of the events, to rape the victim.
The sources have highlighted to EFE that they used drugs that are very dangerous if administered in high doses.
