Man allegedly admits to 60 rapes at resort town
Puerto Plata, Dom. Rep.- Police on Wednesday arrested a 23-year old man who allegedly admitted having raped 60 women between 16 and 28 years of age, in the resort town of Puerto Plata.
Jonathan Alexander Parra Melo raped the women who mounted his motorcycle taxi, and then took them to secluded areas of the city, according to police.
Local media report that during interrogation, Parra said he was raped and traumatized as a child, so he decided to "get even" with the defenseless women."
Although Police didn’t specify the dates of the alleged assaults, Parra had reportedly been committing the crimes during the last two years.
An angry crowd including friends and relatives of the victims awaited outside Puerto Plata’s Police Precinct demanding justice.
