THE Benidorm home of Spanish singer responsible for the song ‘Que Viva España’, Manolo Escobar, was targeted by thieves while he and his family were sleeping.
It was around 8am when the intruder forced the bars on the windows apart and managed to enter the house where the singer, his wife, daughter, granddaughter and a maid were still sleeping.
Apparently when the intruder was caught in the act by one of the house dwellers, he escaped without harming any of them, but took a certain amount of cash and several prizes which he must have believed to be valuable and which may have included several gold records won by Escobar, who is originally from El Ejido in Almeria, over his long career.
Police are investigating the break-in, which although just one of many in the area, is not to have been carried out by gangs which in other cases have tied up the homeowners.
