Officers from the Guardia Civil in Almeria have arrested a man in Cuevas del Almanzora after he was surprised by a homeowner during a break-in. The owner struggled with the burglar as he attempted to steal from the property.
Police officers rushed to the scene of the incident and when they arrived they discovered that the homeowner’s son was outside. The child told the officers that his father was still inside along with the burglar and that the pair were in the kitchen.
After entering the property, the officers were able to keep the homeowner safe from the violent burglar and quickly arrested him.
The incident was reported by Diario de Almeria on May 5. The paper revealed: “The detainee, accused of robbery with force, resistance and disobedience to Guardia Civil officers, has been placed at the disposal of a judge in Vera.”
