Guardia Civil officers attacked with a TV in Nerja


GUARDIA Civil officers investigating a domestic incident in Nerja had a narrow escape when a former US Marine allegedly hurled a 50-inch television at them.

Neighbours reported screams coming from the property and that the 33-year-old man – identified as BRL – had allegedly struck his pregnant wife.

When the officers asked the ex-soldier to open the door, he appeared on the balcony and threw the television at the officers, causing minor injuries to one.

A Torrox judge placed a restraining order on BRL, applying to both his partner and their home.
The ruling comes as a small, but important victory amid an upsurge in domestic violence in Spain.
