The Guardia Civil has arrested a 42-year-old British man in Rojales following an attack with a chainsaw which resulted in a 20 year-old with a severely injured nose. The alleged attacker also threatened to kill another man.
Apparently, the man’s business had been targeted by thieves and he believed two men in a car loitering on the industrial estate to be responsible. He took matters into his own hands, chasing them in his car and forcing their vehicle to stop. He threatened them with a fake gun and then brandished a chainsaw through the window.
Police were alerted when a patrol car spotted people gathered in the industrial estate and the victims reported the attack.
