La Benemérita has counted on the collaboration of the Local Police of Jumilla

The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia, in the framework of the 'Master Plan for coexistence and improvement of school safety', has developed in Jumilla the operation 'VIGLA', which has resulted in the detention of five children as alleged perpetrators of crime of coercion towards a minor, in the form of 'stalking'.

The stalking is a behavior that refers to those who follow, stalk or harass another person persistently, in order to harass and create a deep restlessness, and refers to a psychological picture known as "syndrome of harassing harassment", in which the harasser persecutes his victim obsessively.

Effective prevention of citizen security of the Benemérita began the operation when they took a complaint to a child in Jumilla, which said he was suffering episodes of harassment or stalking repeatedly and frequently, by other minors in the town, based on these constant and habitual insults and threats through mobile phone applications, with the first episodes in the month of April.

In the complaint, the minor highlighted a series of episodes of harassment, in which other minors, of a similar age, would have harassed her insistently and repeatedly, threatening her freedom and even against her patrimony.

In the same way, the victim would have suffered constant insults and threats through text messages and telephone calls, as well as through well-known instant messaging applications.

The reported harassment was not limited to insults and vexations towards the victim.

In early June, several of the minors investigated went to the victim's home and knocked on the door while throwing stones on his balcony, assuring the victim that, on several occasions, he had to flee to avoid being attacked by its persecutors, having to intervene Local Police of Jumilla, which identified a group of minors.

Given the situation of special vulnerability of the child, the researchers conducted a series of inquiries, both in the immediate environment of the victim and in public bodies, in order to know the possible origin of the facts, finding out that the humiliations towards the Minor could have their origin in old quarrels that went back to the year 2016, when one of the now detainees frequently approached her in different parts of the town and made fun of her in public.

These incidents began with isolated incidents, increasing in the last weeks in the form of insults and vexations on public roads and through well-known instant messaging applications, leading to a vexatious graffiti on the facade of the victim's home.

In this way, the alleged activity of the minors investigated has motivated the victim to reach a high degree of anxiety, not even wanting to leave the house.

As the investigation progressed, there was news of another similar event, in which a group of young people approached and intimidated the victim's younger sister, all in order to increase the degree of harassment towards their victim.

Once all the necessary evidence has been obtained, the Civil Guard has located and detained five minors as alleged perpetrators of a crime of coercion, in the form of harassment, and many others have been identified who, although they may have participated in the events, at their young age they would be exempt from criminal liability.

The minors arrested, after being explored in the Civil Guard, have been released in the custody of their respective parents.

The Civil Guard, through the 'Master Plan for coexistence and improvement of school safety', tries to raise awareness among young people to report or ask for help in the case of being a victim of some type of harassment by a partner, as well as well as parents and teachers, in the sense that if they detect sudden changes of mood or academic performance, or even if the child feigns illnesses to avoid going to school, you should try to talk to him to know what happens and in your case, denounce the facts.

Those arrested and the proceedings ordered have been made available to the Office of the Minors of Murcia.
