Alhaurin el Grande
BOMB squads had to race to Alhaurin el Grande yesterday (May 13) after four men broke into a man’s home, stabbed him and left him wearing what looked like a bomb.The 39-year-old Maghrebi man, who runs a disco on the Costa, explained that three men burst into his home on Calle El Greco with a gun and knife at 10am as another waited outside with two getaway cars.Refusing to believe he had no money in the house, the three gave him a heavy beating before again demanding money.After again explaining he had none, the victim said one of the men plunged the knife into his left thigh to show they meant it, and before leaving forced him into a jacket attached to a mass of plastic, wires and batteries.“If you move it will explode,” one of the attackers allegedly said before fleeing the scene.Once alone the man called for help, and while Guardia Civil and National Police force bomb experts who were carrying out a training exercise in Malaga port were rushed to the scene and eventually found no explosives were inside the package, the victim was taken to hospital for treatment.
