EXCLUSIVE by Frances Leate

AN EX-PAT community on the Costa del Sol have been left shocked and disgusted after undercover police arrived at their local bar in search of a dangerous paedophile.

Spanish police have been trying to track down British national, Robert Edward Bill, following an incident in Velez-Malaga, where a 12-year-old girl was dragged into a silver-grey Peugeot 106.

The girl managed to flee from the car and alert her parents before the predator could drive away.
Spanish Police have now launched a major investigation in the hope of finding the ex-teacher, who was known by the name of ‘Bob’.

The known sex offender, who was sentenced to a four year prison sentence in 2009 for trying to abduct a five-year-old girl and indecently assaulting a girl of seven, was working for estate agent, El Pino Properties, in Torrox Park, in Malaga, Spain.

Bar manager, Daniel Paul Ellis, at El Pino Campsite, last night told how Bill fled in the middle of the night after one of many nights drinking in the bar several weeks ago.

He said: “He just started work here back in September and no-one really knew much about him.

“There was something not right about him, he came across as untrustworthy and a lot of people thought that.

“The last time we saw him was a few weeks ago, he was drinking in here as usual and then the next morning he sent a text message to the boss saying that he had a medical emergency and he had to leave immediately.

“It was all very weird.”

Alison Sanderson, originally from Glasgow, use to drink with him when he sang at the jam sessions at Los Amigos Bar, in Torrox Park.

She said: “We are all absolutely sick to the stomach that he’s been socialising here with us and we knew nothing about it.”

On Tuesday, November 27, five undercover police came into El Pino bar in the hope of arresting Bill, but many people believe he has now fled to Morocco.

Bill, who lived in the nearby village of Competa, was originally from St Asaph in South Wales and was described by

Judge Philip Hughes immediately after his 2009 conviction as ‘a sexual predator with an unhealthy sexual interest in young children’.

The 58-year-old former teacher was also told he must stay on the sex offenders register for life following the sentencing but he has been living out on the Costa del Sol these past three months with many of the people he knew unaware of his past.

Anyone who knows Bill or his whereabouts have been asked to contact Spanish Police immediately.

  1. Robert Edward Bill is a very clever, dangerous man.
    He was also NEVER a senior Jehovahs Witness.
    I know this because i am his son, and i personally confronted him when i found evidence that the claims against him might be true.
    He is a crafty and manipulative liar, and i hope they catch him and put him away indefinately.
    The entire family is disgusted with his actions and some have changed their names, with others on the way, so as not to be associated with him.

  2. Does this guy have any physical characteristics? A limp maybe or a problem with his legs or ankle?

    I believe I have just seen him La Cala de Mijas! I notified the Police but by the time they arrived he managed to disappear!
