Q COSTA RICA – Unwanted touching is a no-no in Costa Rica. And despite the headlines of men arrested, for touching women inappropriately on a public bus, the practice continues.

The latest is the detention of a man by police on Thursday night, identified by his last name, Quesada, 26 years of age, who inappropriately touched a woman inside a Tuasa bus –  San Jose – Alajuela route.

The police report says the incident happened in the San Jose terminal, located in front of the La Merced park, on Avenida 2.

According to the woman, she said she was sleeping in her seat when she felt a man put his hands under her skirt. She asked the other passengers for help.

“We received a call from passengers on the bus, the man was detained and taken to the Prosecutor’s office,” said the Ministerio de Seguridad Pública (MSP) statement.

One of the first cases of unwanted touching was on February 3 of this year, when a man was arrested after a woman reported a man took out his penis and touched her buttocks while both were travelling in a bus. Four days earlier, a 62 year-old man was sentenced to three years and eight months in prison for touching a passenger’s private parts on a bus.

Incidents like these continue to occur despite most public buses are equipped with cameras and mos passengers have smartphones to record the incident, call police and post it to the social media.
