NINE Spanish and Colombian youths were arrested after being charged with mugging tourists at knifepoint in Cala Millor.
In a joint operation with Local Police from Son Servera and San Llorenç des Cardassar, they were arrested and charged with violent robbery, causing bodily harm, belonging to a criminal gang, drug trafficking and receiving stolen goods.
The first attack took place on July when four tourists were mugged at knifepoint near a well-known disco on Cala Millor seafront, and their money and mobile phones were stolen.
A little later, another couple was mugged and the woman’s bag was snatched while her partner was threatened and he sustained defensive wounds to his arms and hands getting the knife away from his attacker.
Soon afterwards, a German tourist was also attacked and sustained injuries while attempting to defend himself. He was able to grab the knife which was handed over to the Guardia Civil. One stolen mobile phone was returned to its owner, another had already been swapped for marihuana by one of the detainees.
