Police save life of fleeing house burglar

The police officers convinced the man to climb up from where he was hanging

Police officers from the Fuengirola Local and National Police Force (CNP) managed to prevent a robbery and save a life at the same time last Friday.

The burglar had fled from the police by jumping from terrace to terrace, and after a brief chase hung off a fifth floor balcony to avoid being arrested.

Police grabbed the thief and pulled him onto the roof before arresting him.
