Woman arrested over ‘bamboo stick attack’ on officer


LOCAL POLICE arrested in Velez-Malaga a woman who allegedly attacked police officer with a bamboo stick while authorities were breaking up a fight.

Upon their arrival, police found two men screaming at each other, both with minor injuries. The newsstand owner claimed that the other man had visited his property to buy beer, but he refused saying he owed him money from previous purchases.
