New details reveal how the arrest was possible. The sex offender was arrested while picking up someone close to him at Lisbon Airport. According to “Bild” information, it should have been his mother. When he picked her up, the Portuguese police grabbed and caught the criminal.

The criminal fled from his sentence to Lisbon. There he is said to have repeatedly contacted his relatives and friends. As a result, the investigators tracked him down and were finally able to arrest him with the help of witnesses.

“I’m completely speechless. I just didn’t expect it at that point,” said Edith Stehfest when “Bild” informed her about the arrest. She was “very positively surprised and grateful”. Then she added: “But I’m also sure that my courage, my loudness, have contributed to the fact that the case does not fall out of the public eye.”
