Aggressor had also breached a restraining order and has been arrested

The Special Citizen Security Group (GESC) of Orihuela Local Police has informed of a new case of gender violence that happened last week in the municipality.

The officers acted after a young woman was walking on a central street in the city when her ex boyfriend, who already had a restraining order, tried to run her over with the vehicle he was driving. He then threatened to kill her while he was holding a knife. The man left the scene at great speed when witnesses and the victim called the police on mobile phones.

Local Police and National Police came and took all the information they could, and accompanied the young lady to Vega Baja Hospital.

They also set up a search party to look for the suspect around the city, which managed to find and arrest him and he was taken to the police station for the appropriate action to be taken.
