A MAN was arrested in Madrid, Spain, last week after attempting to burn down a brothel because he was dissatisfied with their service.
As reported by the National Police, after coming out of one of the brothel’s rooms, the 59-year-old man began threatening workers about his terrible experience with 3 women. He then stormed out of the premises on Calle Illescas and headed to a nearly petrol station where he filled up a 3-litre container with fuel, before returning to the property. He then came back inside shouting “I’m going to burn you” before pouring the flammable liquid across the floor.
Thankfully, the police had already been notified by a taxi driver who had spoken to the man when he bought the petrol. The assailant told him exactly what he intended to do with the petrol, with the quick thinking driver following him in his car.
Officers arrived at the scene just in time, walking into the brothel before the man could light his match. The man was then arrested and was remanded in custody, where Euro Weekly News understand that he has an extensive criminal history.
