Knife-point threat to bar worker
The National Police have arrested a 34-year- old man, with a police record, for robbery with violence or intimidation in La Laguna, two of robbery and another of threats committed in Santa Cruz.
The events that led to his initial arrest occurred in a bar in La Laguna. A staff member was opening up when he was approached by a person with his face covered, almost completely, with a black stocking. Suddenly, this person took out a knife that was hidden and intimidated the employee demanding he handed over the cash register.
The victim grabbed an object to defend himself, afraid that he would be attacked with the knife with which he was being intimidated. The would-be thief then ran away.
Police later arrested the suspect in Santa Cruz where he had also approached people who were withdrawing money from an ATM, pushing them to the floor and stealing the cash.
