THE Local Police of Motril recently resolved two separate incidents by making two arrests. One man was arrested for a presumed crime of gender violence and another was arrested for allegedly violating a restraining order.
In the first incident, a patrol car was sent to a street in the east of Motril following reports that a woman there was in a state of distress. After being questioned by the police in the presence of two witnesses, the woman confirmed that her partner had assaulted her and then ran away.
After carrying out a search of the area, the officers found the presumed aggressor. The man was arrested and has been handed over to authorities.
Meanwhile, in another incident, a man turned up at his parents’ home asking for money, despite the fact that they apparently had a restraining order against him. The man was arrested and remanded in custody.
