Se­rial of­fender mugs man out­side Dé­nia night­club

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

A rev­eller is ac­cused of mug­ging a stranger out­side a Dé­nia night­club and steal­ing €700 in cash from him be­fore flee­ing the area in the early hours of Satur­day. Na­tional Po­lice say the vic­tim, a 26-year-old Mo­roc­can, had with­drawn the money from a cash­point just be­fore meet­ing a friend at the undis­closed nightspot, and was at­tacked when they went out­side to smoke.

His as­sailant, a Spa­niard aged 19, beat and kicked him with­out ap­par­ent mo­tive and, once he was down, grabbed the cash from his pocket and fled.

The vic­tim, bruised and bleed­ing, went straight to the Na­tional Po­lice, who caught the ac­cused on Tues­day. It is not known whether they were able to re­cover any of the money. Of­fi­cers say the mug­ger had been ar­rested on five pre­vi­ous oc­ca­sions for neari­den­ti­cal at­tacks, but had some­how re­mained on the loose. It is still not clear whether he was re­manded in cus­tody for the sixth vi­o­lent theft this week.
