GUARDIA CIVIL officers arrested a 19- year-old man in Motril after allegedly carrying out a robbery in the area of Paseo del Altillo. The events took place on September 7, when the alleged culprit is believed to have hit a 49-year-old man with a glass bottle after he asked for a cigarette and the man refused.
He then reportedly continued hitting the man on the floor, after which he stole €390 from him.
As a result, the victim sustained injuries to his nose and several bruises for which he had to receive treatment at an outpatient’s clinic in Almuñecar.
Several witnesses reported that the attacker was a Moroccan man who lives in the town.
He has since been taken into custody.
