A swimming instructor in southwestern Germany is suspected of sexually abusing 40 young girls, and using an underwater camera to film some of the abuse.
Baden-Baden prosecutorâ€™s office spokesman Michael Klose told the dpa news agency Wednesday that the 33-year-old man, whose name wasnâ€™t released, was first arrested in September in connection with six cases following an investigation of parentsâ€™ complaints.
Klose says after further investigation, the manâ€™s now suspected of 136 counts of sexual abuse of girls ranging in age from 4 to 8 in the Baden-Baden area from October 2015 until his arrest. Klose says he also intimidated at least two victims, with the â€œthreat that he would kill them.â€
