Agents of the National Police of the Elche Police Station have arrested three people, as alleged perpetrators of an attempted robbery with violence and intimidation, which they perpetrated at an ATM of a bank located in the district of Las Bayas de Elche .
The events occurred around 10:15 p.m. when a call was received from a person who reported that, when he was about to deposit money into his current account through an ATM of the bank branch located in the same rural departure, a woman got out of a vehicle, approached him and, without saying anything, sprayed his face with a spray to try to take all his money, however, the woman was unable to take the money from the victim since she grabbed it forcefully, so the woman left the place aboard the same vehicle where two other people were waiting for her.
Later, a spray can was found on one of the detainees, which turned out to be the product with which the detained woman allegedly sprayed the victim's face. In addition to this, they also found a men's shoulder bag with 200 euros in cash inside divided into several bills, which could come from some other similar event.
The three arrested, a man and a woman, of Spanish nationality, and another woman of English nationality, aged between 43 and 60 years, were placed at the disposal of the Elche Guard Court of Instruction.
