AN Almeria court sentenced a man accused of attacking an Albox hostel owner to three and half years in prison.

The case relates to an incident last June when a man wearing a hoody entered the establishment and demanded beer or lottery tickets, then grabbed the owner by the arm and whacked him on the head with a bottle.

He then proceeded to rifle through drawers looking for items of value until he found a mobile phone.

The court also issued a restraining order, prohibiting the aggressor from going within 200 metres of the victim or communicating with him for five years, and ordered him to pay 240 euros for the injuries caused and a fine of €5 a day for 30 days.
