The Prosecutor for the Provincial Court of Alicante is asking for 10 years in prison for a 29 year old Moroccan man who allegedly attacked two Guardia Civil officers in Callosa de Segura.
According to the Prosecutor’s written accusation, in April 2016 two officers stopped the accused for identification and he repeatedly hit one of them in the head. The incident took place before dawn on Calle Adolfo Cardona Pascual.
The young man became violent and “pulled the case of a rear view mirror off a parked car and started hitting one of the Guardias in the head with it”. The accused then took his pistol from him and pointed it at him but in the end the officer was able to stop him from loading it. The other officer who helped his colleague received “hard punches to the forearms” from the accused.
As a result of the attack the first Guardia Civil was on sick leave for 43 days while his colleague suffered injuries that forced him to wear a neck brace and attend rehabilitation.
As well as the 10 years in prison, the Prosecutor has asked for the accused to pay compensation of €2,130 to the first officer and €1,560 to the second, as well as to pay the cost of the officer’s trousers that were ripped - €32.67 – and the rear view mirror he pulled off - €51.21.
