One of the stewards of Metro Tourism, who perpetrated a sexual assault, was arrested on Friday, after Gebze Public Prosecutor’s Office objected to his release.
The steward had initially refused the claims of sexual assault, was detained and released immediately after questioning.
The release of the perpetrator had caused an uproar in social media. Gebze Public Prosecutor’s Office, which leads the investigation on the assault, also objected to the release. The perpetrator was detained again and referred to Gebze 2nd Criminal Court of Peace. This time, confessing to his crime, the steward was arrested.
A Metro tourism official had confirmed on last Wednesday that a steward at the company sexually assaulted a passenger on the bus en route to Muğla from İstanbul.
