The Guardia Civil has arrested in the Mazarrón district of Puerto de Mazarrón an individual of 24 years old who was reduced by a trainee officer when he was about to enter a leisure establishment where a brawl was taking place, wielding two large glass bottles.
The offender, with an extensive criminal record, after attempting to attack the guards with broken bottles, was arrested as the alleged perpetrator of a crime of assault on an officer of the authority, sources from the Benemérita reported in a statement.
The action began when members of the Citizen Security Prevention Unit were alerted by a neighbour to the existence of a brawl in aentertainment venue near the barracks.
Immediately, the three civil guards on duty rushed towards the establishment, while an individual ran towards the same place with two glass bottles that he had taken from a nearby container.
One of the officers, a trainee civil guard, despite her short professional experience, did not hesitate to pounce and throw the suspect to the ground to reduce him and keep him away from where he could cause harm to third parties, despite the fact that the intense struggle and the possession of sharp objects endangered his life.
HIS LIFE WAS IN DANGER
At that moment, the subject, far from stopping his attitude, smashed the bottles against the pavement and tried to attack the young officer on several occasions before the expectant eyes of the neighbours.
When his colleagues became aware of this dangerous situation, they retreated in their advance towards the premises to provide support to the officer who was still struggling on the ground with the subject without the latter relenting in his attitude.
The action culminated in the arrest of a 24 year old Moroccan male, a resident of Puerto de Mazarrón and with a long criminal record, as the alleged perpetrator of a serious attack on a police officer.
The intervention of this civil guard demonstrated her shrewdness, by anticipating a possible situation of danger to third parties, with a decisive action which, despite her limited professional experience – with less than six months in active service – she was able to resolve successfully.
The detainee, the sharp objects and the investigative proceedings were handed over to the Totana Court of Instruction number 2.
