Four arrested in robbery probe

Entrance to Market, Gibraltar
GIBRALTAR (GibChronicle) Detectives investigating a violent robbery earlier this month have arrested four people. Three of them are Spanish nationals, including two women and a man, all in their early 20s. The fourth person arrested is a local man in his late 20s. All four are helping police with enquiries and have been released on police bail while investigations continue. The robbery took place in a shop in Market Place on April 13 and resulted in a young woman being viciously assaulted. Two men in hooded tops forced their way into the store and beat up the young Spanish woman serving behind the counter. They then tied her up and gagged her before making off with the shop’s takings. The woman, in her 20s, sustained facial bruising and lacerations to the arms. She was treated in hospital for shock but discharged shortly afterwards. The incident happened at around 9pm in a store on the corner of the City Walls.
