Dangerous fugitive wanted by the Czech Republic arrested in Malaga. The fugitive had previously managed to escape arrest in Spain and even bitten and attacked officers.
Officers from the National Police made the arrest in Malaga’s Alhaurín de la Torre on October 26. The officers arrested a dangerous fugitive who was wanted by the Czech Republic. A European Arrest Warrant (EAW) had been issued for his arrest. He was wanted for a crime of gender violence.
The 33-year-old Czech national had used an iron bar to attack his former partner, according to the warrant. The attack took place in April 2017 in the Czech Republic.
The man was violent and elusive. He initially managed to avoid arrest in Spain. He even bit and attacked officers from the National Police when they attempted to arrest him in the Alhaurina district of Zapata.
The National police became aware of the fugitive in June. International cooperation revealed that he could have led to Spain.
A careful investigation led officers from the Fugitive Localisation Group of the General Commissariat of the Judicial Police along with officers from the Udyco Costa de Sol to discover the fugitive’s location. He was discovered in a house in the countryside in the town of Zapata.
Officers attempted to arrest the fugitive on October 14. He was able to escape after kicking, biting and punching the officers. Multiple officers had to receive medical care for their injuries.
The police operation proved successful on October 26 when the fugitive was arrested. He again tried to avoid arrest as he fled on foot through the countryside. The suspect also tried to use force to escape. Multiple officers were able to catch him in the end.
As reported by El Diario: “The suspect was arrested for his alleged responsibility for the offences of assault and battery and assault on law enforcement officers, as well as for the warrant issued by the Czech Republic. The competent judicial authority has ordered him to be remanded in custody.”
