Police officers arrested a man for two alleged incidents of handbag theft and they also saved his life last Friday, when he ran to the beach beside La Bajadilla port and swam out to sea in order not to be caught.

The two officers who had spotted and chased him were concerned that he would be hit by a yacht or jetski and drown, and asked the owner of a fishing boat to take them out to pick him up.
