Teens arrested in Almeria over armed robbery


NATIONAL Police have arrested three teenagers in Almeria after they allegedly robbed a man in the street and threatened him with a knife.

The three teens, aged 14, 15 and 16, allegedly approached a 25-year-old man with a large knife on Calle Alvarez de Castro making several demands.

After the man refused to give them his mobile phone, they reportedly snatched a packet of tobacco and escaped towards the nearby Paseo de Almeria.

Police were then able to locate the trio close to the street market stall on Calle Duque de Alhumada, where they were apprehended.
