Phone robbers in court

The 4th section of the Provincial Court of Valencia is holding the trial from Thursday in which a couple, a man and a woman, are accused of the crime of robbery with violence and another of injuries for hitting a man to steal his mobile phone, and for which a sentence of six years in prison is requested.

The events occurred in December 2018 in Javea, when the defendant approached the victim and spoke to her incoherently. Given the possibility that the woman was suffering from a health problem, the man took out his mobile phone to call 112, at which point the woman tried to take it away by force, aided by the other defendant, who hit the victim’s back.

A chase followed and the victim fell and broke his leg, at which point the robbers then attacked him and kicked him in the head, resulting in him suffering injuries that took 168 days to heal and the consequences are a slight limitation in walking and a limp.
