AN officer of the Guardia Civil has been injured in an attempted controlled traffic stop.
The officer in question has sustained injuries to both arms in the attack in the San Roque area this Thursday, November 19, but they are reported not to be life-threatening.
This is the second time the same officer has been involved in an attack where the vehicle being detained has tried to evade capture and in doing so has struck the officer causing injury.
In August of this year, the same officer was injured as officers stopped and detained persons linked to ‘narcolanchas,’ these are rigid boats used to ferry drugs from the sea to dry land and require several cans of fuel on board to make the recovery journey.
In this latest incident, the Guardia Civil had stopped a suspect car with petrol containers on board, but the suspects attempted to get away and in doing so, injured the officer who tried to stop them.
