Terror in Santa Cruz park
A man brandishing what looked like a real gun brought terror to a park in Santa Cruz.
Police were called to the Salamanca district following reports that people with children were being threatened.
Officers went to the scene and ordered the man to hand over the weapon. Initially, he refused but then threw it on the ground and was arrested.
He is aged 63 and is known to the police. Later, it was verified that the gun was a fake. A police spokesman said it was only possible to verify this on close-up inspection.
The man faces prosecution for a crime of serious threatening behaviour.
