Burglar nearly bleeds to death
A burglar landed up in hospital when a robbery nearly had fatal consequences in Lanzarote.
Police who went to the scene of an incident at a bar in Arrecife arrested three men, aged 26, 27 and 34 years, all of Moroccan nationality.
A witness had phoned 091 at dawn after seeing three individuals trying to get into the premises.
Officers found one of the men lying on the floor with a badly cut arm and they had to stem the flow of blood with a tourniquet to save his life. He was rushed to hospital.
A trail of blood took them to the glass door of the bar which had been smashed open, the cause of the man’s injury. The two other men were found nearby.
