An event has shocked this Sunday in Algorta, Getxo, a man of Moroccan origin was arrested after kissing a girl who was only 4 years old on the mouth. The incident, which occurred in Plaza San Nicolás at 21:30 p.m. last Saturday, has generated a wave of indignation among citizens present and beyond.

According to witnesses, the square was full of people enjoying the good weather when the inappropriate act occurred. The quick intervention of some passers-by allowed the man to be separated from the girl and a major incident was avoided. The police arrived at the scene shortly after and proceeded to arrest the attacker, who now faces charges for his conduct and has been booked into jail.

This event has revived debates about security in public spaces and municipal crime management, especially in relation to crimes committed by foreigners in the town. Local groups and political parties such as EH Bildu and Podemos have been criticized for their alleged lack of response and call for acts of rejection.

The Getxo digital newspaper has reported that this case has caused considerable upheaval in the community, and many citizens are demanding concrete responses and measures to prevent future incidents of this nature.
