THREE Youths Arrested After Fighting With Police In A Swimming Pool in Moratalaz, Madrid

Madrid Municipal Police have reported an incident that took place at around 7pm on Saturday afternoon (May 29), in the popular municipal swimming pool in Moratalaz – a municipality of the city of Madrid – after the facility’s security guards had reported a problem to the police involving a large group of youths who were refusing to leave the swimming pool enclosure after being asked to do so for unruly behaviour.

Several Municipal Police patrols responded to the call, with the security guards having reported that the group of youths was not respecting the coronavirus protocols of the facility, even after being confronted by the security guards, they had continued refusing to wear masks, while smoking shisha, and drinking alcohol around the pool, according to

Upon arrival, the police patrols reportedly approached the group and asked them to stop what they were doing or they must leave the facility,  at which point a massive scuffle allegedly broke out, which resulted in several officers being injured, and saw three youths arrested.
