Arrest after couple mugged
Police have arrested one of two men who mugged a tourist in Las Galletas.
The incident happened at the end of January but officers have been investigating since and are confident that the second person will also be idenitified.
The couple were walking along a dirt path on the outskirts of the town when the two men jumped out from their hiding place in a banana plantation. One of them grabbed the husband around the neck and threatened to attack him unless they handed over money and belongings. They got away with 40 euros and a camera.
The couple managed to give the police a good description of the two attackers and the one arrested is believed to have a record for similar offences.
