A MAN has been arrested in connection with a violent attempted robbery on a bread delivery man in Malaga.
The delivery man was on his way to his vehicle at Plaza Roja in Velez Malaga when he was attacked by a robber wielding an axe, at 6.45am on September 29.
The attacker, with a balaclava on his head and socks on his hands, was carrying an axe.
He demanded the bread man hand over money.
Thankfully a passer-by chased the attacker off, but not before he had planted his weapon into the bread delivery man’s neck.
A 46-year-old man has now been arrested, said police.
