TWO banks and an estate agency were held up in Malaga in less than 24 hours.
The first was at an Unicaja Bank in Avenida Jose Ortega y Gasset in Malaga, where a man dressed in blue overalls and armed with a knife took an unknown quantity of money before fleeing on a stolen motorbike which was parked outside. The motorbike was found later near the main police station.
The following day, two men entered another Unicaja bank in the Cruz del Humilladero area armed with a gun and a knife and stole around €3,000 before fleeing on foot. A client in the office had called the police, but the robbers managed to escape.
Within two hours, there was another robbery at an office in the nearby Cortijo Alto area, where a man threatened an employee with a knife and stole a box containing €300. The woman suffered a nervous breakdown.
Another attempted robbery was reported, this time in Marbella, after a client saw a man who appeared to be planning to enter a bank and whom he said was armed with a knife. Police are investigating.
