A young man has been stopped this past monday in San Pedro Alcantara, in Marbellaafter allegedly steal a high-end watch from a touristas police sources have confirmed to this newspaper.
The events occurred around 1:00 p.m. on Avenida de Barcelona. A witness alerted to the 112 Andalucía Emergency service that a young man allegedly had removed the clock that a woman wore on her wrist and, for this, he would have used violence. Although, the affected person would not have been injured, so only members of the National Police were activated.
After the robbery the supposed author would have fled. Although, several meters later some people would have managed to reduce it until the arrival of the agents, sources close to the case have explained, who have added that the alleged thief threw the watch into a garden “after being cornered”.
Finally, the alleged person responsible for the events, of whom no further information has emerged, has been arrested and the watch recovered. Nevertheless, the police investigation is still open trying to clarify the facts, since the theft of high-end watches has become, especially in Marbella, an increasingly common criminal practice that threatens citizen security.

Those investigated, without any link between the robberies, would have violently stole the watches in one of the cases and taking advantage of neglect of the victims in the other two.
all the facts occurred in the area of Puerto Banus and also the victims were tourists who were spending a few days in Marbella.
