MOT Park AmericasTwo men were arrested in Motril, suspected of taking part in a mugging in one of the town’s parks.

The incident occurred yesterday afternoon. The victim was sat on a park bench when five individuals approached and started attacking him in order to get hold of his wallet and objects of value.

During the scuffle in which a large stone and a knife were used to intimidate the victim, the thieves managed to steal a 50-euro note, his wallet and mobile phone.

A passerby who witnessed what was going on phoned the emergency number 091 to alert the police (Policía Nacional).

When the police patrols arrived, one unit stayed with the victim and the other set off in pursuit, finally arresting one of the suspects on a roof and the other, beneath a swimming-pool cover.

The arrested men, aged 20 and 34, were both Moroccan and neither had a criminal record.
