THREE youths were arrested for attacking a security guard after they were caught shoplifting in Almeria.
One of the youths was caught coming out of clothing shop after the alarm at the door was activated. A guard chased him and he threw down the bags containing the stolen goods, which were picked up by a passer-by.
The guard caught the youth, but two others approached and began to attack him and the man who collected the bags before fleeing.
The detainees, aged between 18 and 21 were later arrested by National Police.
