Pizza Delivery Mugged | Costa Tropical Gazette News

Posted on

The Guardia Civil in Salobreña suspects an 18-year-old of allegedly carrying out a mugging on a fast-food-delivery rider on the night of the 5th of November.

The victim was on his way to deliver a fast-food order but was intercepted by two individuals in front of a small housing complex. This being the 5th of November and Halloween in Spain lasting several days, they threatened him with a large knife and the words, “Trick or Treat?” He was quickly convinced to hand over all his personal possessions (mobile, cash and ID).

After they had left, he reported the mugging to the Guardia Civil post in Salobreña, who opened an investigation into the incident.

They first looked into the telephone number that was used to order the fast food, as nobody had phoned into the restaurant after the mugging to find out where their order was. Nor was the restaurant able to contact the supposed clients on the original number.

The investigating officers discovered that the muggers had asked to borrow somebody else’s phone to make the call, probably claiming that they had no credit or battery. After making the call they wiped the call record on the phone and blocked the phone so they couldn’t get any calls back from the fast-food joint.

Slowly but surely, the police closed in on the 18-year old, who stands accused of the mugging. Now they’re looking for this accomplice.
