A 19-YEAR-OLD who allegedly stabbed a food shop manager in the neck in Marbella has been arrested. 

The young man is accused of assaulting the worker to rob him of the cash register. 

The assailant made a cut of about 12 cm (4.7 inch) in the victim’s neck after a struggle, according to the police. 

After this, the young criminal reportedly fled the scene without taking any money. 

During his escape, he is said to have forgotten a bag he had brought to carry the cash inside the shop.

This bag was crucial for the police to be able to identify the suspect, a local resident. 

Agents were able to find the accused, who was also breaking a restraining order against his ex partner at the time of the arrest. 

He was detained and will be remanded into custody until the trial takes place.
