Man Barricades Himself in Torrevieja Apartment and Threatens to Kill Three Women
Guardia Civil and Torrevieja local police officers smashed into an apartment in the Acequión area of the city on Saturday after a man had barricaded himself in, and was threatening three women with a knife.
The incident was in a social-housing block on Plaza de las Islas Canarias by the Acequión health centre, with police getting the call about a man who was involved with a row with a neighbour, who then was threatening to kill three women in his grandmother’s flat.
Despite pleas from the Guardia and the police, the man would not open the door, and so a court order was obtained to enter the home, with the knife-wielder threatening to kill himself, before officers cuffed him. It was revealed subsequently that he had an outstanding arrest warrant against him for violence against women.
