The victim, an elderly woman, had to receive medical assistance due to injuries sustained by theft
The Civil Guard of the Region of Murcia and the Local Police of Mula have developed an investigation to clarify a robbery with violence committed in the urban area of â€‹â€‹Mula, which has culminated with the identification and detention of a minor and investigation of another, both as alleged perpetrators of robbery with violence.
The proceedings began at the end of last December, when the commission was detected a robbery with violence through the "pull" procedure.
The criminal act took place late in the afternoon on a busy street in the town's urban area, when the victim, an elderly woman, was walking through the area.
After the commission of the robbery, several patrols of the Local Police of Mula and the Prevention of Citizen Security of the Benemérita were immediately brought to the scene, who attended to the victim and initiated the investigation to obtain the first witness testimonies, as well as all the relevant evidence for the clarification of the facts.
The excessive violence of the assailants, as well as the advanced age of the victim, caused her to be shocked and needed medical assistance as a result of the injuries caused by theft.
The first investigations carried out allowed to verify that for the commission of the robbery the authors focused an excessive aggressiveness against the victim until they managed to snatch the bag that was carried at that time, which contained personal effects of it.
As a result of the investigation, the agents obtained indications that allowed the full identification of two young people, minors, who allegedly were after the authorship of the violent robbery.
While the investigation was taking place, agents of both bodies managed to recover all the stolen effects, purse, purse and personal documentation, except for the cash carried by the victim, which the attackers abandoned during their flight, apparently to avoid being related to the facts investigated .
Systematic and violent acting
The investigation shows that the now arrested had allegedly carried out a prior surveillance of their victim to ensure that the victim was alone at the moment of materializing the robbery and thus be able to consummate it with total impunity and making identification difficult.
The search device has culminated, in recent days, with the location and detention of one of the suspects and the investigation of another, both as alleged perpetrators of robbery with violence and intimidation.
The investigation remains open, not ruling out that those now investigated are related to other assaults of similar characteristics, facts that have generated social alarm in the population.
The detainee, the investigated and the proceedings have been made available to the Court of Mule Instruction of the Juvenile Prosecutor's Office of Murcia.
