A MAN has waved a gun in the face of staff at a chemist shop on Spain’s Costa del Sol in a shocking alleged robbery attempt that was captured on the store’s CCTV.
The video that has been widely circulated to groups on social media by a Mijas councillor was posted at the weekend and is believed to have been filmed at the Farmacia de Calypso.
The man, wearing a grey hoodie over a dark baseball cap, is captured waving a handgun in the face of staff behind the counter.
A short 1 minute 44 second clip shows a member of staff shielding his face with his hand before the man goes behind the counter and a struggle follows. The clip ends with the alleged robber leaving the store.
It is not yet known if anything was stolen during the staff’s frightening ordeal or if the handgun was real or a fake.
