Guardia Civil officers in Benamocarra have detained two men for allegedly beating a third man with a metal bar.
The victim tried to cover his head with a chair as the two men launched an apparently unprovoked attack with a metal bar. When locals decided to intervene, the two men fled the scene on horseback and disappeared into the countryside.
The Guardia Civil began a search of the area and two hours later located the two individuals and took them into custody. The victim required treatment for head wounds.
