PALMA National Police have launched an investigation after a a man was allegedly beaten during a violent burglary in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.
As reported by the police, the incident took place in the early hours of November 25 at a property on Calle Tetuán in the Son Roca neighbour in the capital.
Equipped with knives and machetes, the thieves gagged the homeowner, who is described as a man in his 50s, threating to kill him if he did not hand over his valuables. The victim was then subsequently beaten by the assailants.
Officers investigating the incident are currently analysing security cameras in the area, as well as taking statements from residents who were in the neighbourhood at the time.
We at Euro Weekly News understand that as the burglars did not steal anything from the property, the police are considering if the thieves were perhaps known by the man.
