ALICANTE, 2 Apr. (EUROPA PRESS) – A National Police officer arrested a man in central Alicante after he fled when he allegedly had just committed a violent robbery against an 88-year-old woman, injuring her head after struggling with her.

The officer was on duty near Plaza de la Montañeta on the morning of March 25, when she heard several agitated bystanders shouting ‘thief’ while running after an individual, according to a statement from the National Police.

Therefore, the officer began chasing this person while ordering him to stop and identifying herself as police during the pursuit. During the escape attempt, the pursued dropped some banknotes and a wallet without stopping.

Finally, the officer managed to catch the suspect and subdue him, also corroborating more thoroughly the initial indications observed. Witnesses indicated where the victim was located.

The victim was an elderly woman who was conscious but had a contusion wound on her head from which she was bleeding profusely. The rest of the testimonies confirmed that the perpetrator approached the victim and tried to snatch her purse, which led to a violent struggle. The individual ended up throwing the lady to the ground, and due to the impact against the sidewalk, she sustained the injury presented on her head, after which the man fled with the loot.

Once all the circumstances were verified, the National Police officer proceeded to arrest the man for committing a violent robbery. The man, of Algerian nationality and 18 years old, was taken to the Central District Police Station of Alicante and made available to the Guard Instruction Courts of Alicante the day after the events.
