Four young men arrested in Orihuela

The National Police have arrested in Orihuela four young men accused of attempting to rob a house while its owners were in the property. It happened at about 4am on Wednesday, according to the police.

The victims realised what was happening thanks to the barking of their dog and they saw a youth jumping over the perimeter wall of their property onto their land.

They called the police and described the four assailants they had seen and the vehicle used to get away.

Immediately a police operation was coordinated to cover the possible ways the suspects could have gone. Officers saw a matching vehicle in Raiguero de Bonanza and a chase began, which ended with the car being intercepted. The four suspected burglars, aged between 19 and 22, were arrested and put at the disposition of a court.
