THE MASK: Gang of three arrested after robbing Benidorm cafe in scary masks and with tasers

NATIONAL Police have arrested a gang of three who robbed a cafe in Benidorm dressed in scary masks and with tasers.

The group also wore hoods and gloves to hide their identity before robbing the cafe in broad daylight last April.

Police, however, only just released pictures and details of the incident.

Several employees were electrocuted when a taser was fired during the episode.
