Once there they took his wallet, clothes and all his belongings and shut him into a hole.

Using a spade he found in the space, after a day and a half of digging the victim managed to escape and run to a nearby service station for help.

Spanish media reported that a few days earlier a number of individuals has jumped on another person at knifepoint and forced them to go to different cashpoints and take out money. They then shut them into a car boot and abandoned them.

National Police have now arrested two men and a woman in connection with the cases.
