Within the framework of the Kikiji operation the Civil Guard has arrested three men (18 and 33 years old) and two women (with police records) as suspected perpetrators of a crime robbery and violence. The five conspired with a young man to rob an Armilla gambling hall.
The December 18th robbery took place. The victim was a twenty-seven-year-old man who won 5,000 euros that night in an Armilla game room, and who was never aware that his winnings had attracted attention. A boy and two girls, who were not able to look away from him but decided to stand up for the unwitting player. The boy called two of his friends and left the premises. However, he did not warn the girls to keep an eye on the victim and notify him when he leaves. At around 1:30 AM, the victim took the money and fled the premises. The victim was followed by two young women who came out to inform him that they were in a relationship.
The boy who had accompanied them previously and his two best friends remained outside, watching from a van. They saw the victim, and they followed her to her home. Two of the robbers jumped out of their vehicle and approached the victim, asking her to hand over the cash she won. The robber had a knife in one hand, and the young man refused to give it up. He was left severely injured on the ground by the fourth robber. He only had 2,000 euros, which the robbers took from his jacket pocket. The rest of the money was distributed to other areas of his body so they didn't bother to search it.
The victim was taken to PTS hospital with serious injuries. He underwent emergency surgery and was kept in hospital for five days.
After the robbery, the Judicial Police team of Civil Guard of Armilla opened investigation and examined images from security cameras at the gaming venue. The agents found the three young men watching the victim.
The Civil Guard has been able to reconstruct the events of last December and identify those involved in the robbery through other investigations. The detainees can be seen in other images taken by investigators at the time the stabbing occurred.
After the five suspects are identified, the arrests continue from last February to last July 14 when the last robber was captured.
After passing through the Granada guard, the three men were taken into Albolote prison.
