National Police in Malaga have arrested their main suspect after the body of an 88-year-old man was found in his apartment on Tuesday, with signs of violence.
The victim's son was arrested this Thursday (5 August), hiding out in the city centre, official sources confirmed in a statement. He is a 54-year-old man of Spanish nationality, who also lived at the apartment with the elderly man, and is also accused of stealing from his father - a former bank worker.
The alarm was raised on Tuesday at 1.40pm, when a 112 call - believed to have been made by the man’s son – alerted the emergency services.
The police investigation is still open and officers continue to make enquiries.
