CRIME SCENE: Accused’s car in Plaza Adolfo Suarez Photo credit: Guardia Civil

A 64-YEAR-OLD Moroccan was arrested after driving into Javea’s Plaza Adolfo Suarez, a pedestrian area.

The car deliberately mowed down several terrace tables outside a restaurant and although nobody was injured, witnesses prevented him from leaving before the Guardia Civil arrived.

He was later taken into custody and charged with attempted homicide after confessing that he had intended to kill one of the diners following an argument.
