The arrested, alleged perpetrator of robbery with violence and intimidation, has been placed in pretrial detention
Surprisingly assaulted his victim on the shoulder and chest to take away his belongings
The courageous intervention of a citizen avoided a fatal outcome
The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia has developed an investigation in Torre Pacheco to identify, locate and detain the perpetrator of a robbery committed against a neighbor of the municipality who was attacked with a knife, which has been settled, an hour later of the event, with the arrest of a dangerous criminal as the alleged perpetrator of robbery with violence and intimidation.
The investigation began last Tuesday, October 29, when the Civil Guard was alerted to the robbery committed in the public highway of the municipality of Torre Pacheco, the result of which, a neighbor was injured with a knife.
Citizen Security Prevention units were displaced to the place, who found the victim while she was assisted and transferred by an emergency health provision to the medical center of the municipality where, after being treated, she was discharged.
The injured had two shallow cuts, at shoulder height and in the thorax, although they did not endanger his life if they required his urgent sanitary transfer.
The Civil Guard found out that this 66-year-old neighbor was assaulted by surprise when he was walking along a street in the municipality by an individual who, after nailing a sharp object to his shoulder, demanded that he hand over the money.
After this and when he tried to overcome, he was again attacked in the chest with the same object, which caused a hemorrhage that made him fear for his life.
The courageous intervention of a neighbor avoided a fatal outcome
At the scene, the agents met with the person who had requested medical services and who had alerted the Civil Guard.
Apparently, this citizen, after observing how the assault took place, did not hesitate to take his vehicle and go to the place to help the victim.
Even putting his own physical integrity at risk, he faced the aggressor and tried to hold him while he continued with his violent attitude, both of whom fell to the ground, at which point he took advantage of the suspect to flee the place to the race without noticing that, during the fray, he had dropped his mobile phone.
His courageous intervention prevented the aggression from continuing, that the victim was seriously injured and that the suspect escaped without being identified.
Once the necessary information was obtained, a large police search device was established that culminated, one hour after the event, when the Civil Guard located and arrested the suspect.
This is a young man of 21 years, of Moroccan nationality and neighbor of Torre Pacheco to whom the alleged authorship of the crime of robbery with violence and intimidation is attributed.
The arrested and the proceedings have been made available to the Court of Instruction of San Javier, whose owner ordered his entry into provisional prison.
