A 17-year-old girl, a resident of Cancun, Quintana Roo, lived a real nightmare after she received a marriage job through the Babysitter application. What seemed like an opportunity job turned into a traumatic experience of sexual abuse.
The story was revealed by Azahalea Hernández, the teenager’s mother, who recounted the terrible events that took place in Cancun. The minor agrees to take care of the child through the application, establishing contact and communication through WhatsApp.
On Friday, May 5, the 17-year-old met at the meeting point, the entrance of the condominium in Cancun, before nine o’clock in the morning. However, what happened to him was much more serious than he could have imagined.
Then the virgin came to her husband, and took her into the field, and then to the house. There, individuals repeatedly sexually abused her. The striker was the same one who had hired her through Babysits, a Dutch nanny search platform.
Mother Azahalea shared the six hours in which her daughter was deprived of her freedom. According to her testimony, the attacker, who was identified as Joseph Luis, subjected the girl to beatings and threats before using her for prostitution.
After the abuse, the assailant left Minor in the street, warning him not to say what had happened to him. Fortunately, the girl managed to return home and tell her family about the terrible events.
On Saturday, May 6, Azahalea and her daughter went to the State Attorney General’s office to report the crime. The authors informed them that they were dealing with the case of priority basis, since there was another similar case of Babysitting in the same area.
A week later, Cancun Police arrested a man named Erick ‘N, whose known descriptions matched those of the victim. Evidence was found to link him to other cases of kidnapping and abduction in the area.
Azahalea called on other possible victims to report this man and seek justice. Young people may feel safer with their detention, but it is important that there are more complaints so that they do not go unpunished.
The story of this young Cancun woman is a stark reminder of the dangers that can lurk in recruiting apps like Babysitter. It is necessary that steps be taken for the safety of young women and to prevent future cases of abuse.
