The Civil Guard clarifies the kidnapping of two people that occurred in Alicante and held in Fuengirola (Malaga) for several days

The 4 kidnappers, who would have demanded from the different families the payment of an initial ransom of € 150,000, have been arrested

During their captivity, the victims received little food and were forced to relieve themselves on top, in addition to being beaten and threatened with being mutilated and even killed if the rescue was not carried out.

The Civil Guard has detained four men, between 25 and 35 years old, in Fuengirola (Malaga), all of them of Moroccan nationality, as alleged perpetrators of separate crimes of kidnapping, perpetrated against two victims, both 25-year-old men and of the same nationality than their captors, and belonging to a criminal organization.

The youths were assaulted and put into a vehicle on the A7, between Alicante and Murcia, on the night of September 30, placing their captors and heading immediately to the province of Malaga. During the journey, another vehicle acted as a shuttle vehicle in order to evade any police control that could frustrate its claims.

Quick police coordination from different provinces

The alarm was raised in the province of Alicante by the sister and the mother of one of the kidnapped, going to the Civil Guard for help after learning that they had their relative locked up in an unknown place and that, in exchange for their release, they demanded the payment of an exorbitant amount of money after threatening to end the life of the hostage if the Security Forces and Bodies were alerted.
Given the seriousness of the events, a large police force was immediately activated, consisting mainly of units from the Civil Guard of Alicante, Madrid and Malaga. Rapid progress in the investigation allowed the captors to be located in a single-family home in the urban center of Fuengirola, who made the decision to release both victims under police pressure.

Payment of the ransom from the environment of one of the victims

It was not until a demonstration was taken from one of the hostages that the investigators learned that he had not been alone, since it was found that he shared captivity with another friend whose family chose to pay the ransom and not go to the police forces.
Once the victims were insured, they entered and searched the house where both were deprived of liberty. There, the telephone terminals used to make the calls were intervened through which economic conditions had been imposed for the release of the two young men. The two vehicles used for the commission of the events and cash, among other effects, were also seized.
The actions were directed by the Court of Instruction No. 1 of Orihuela (Alicante) and were carried out by agents of the Civil Guard Command of Alicante, Malaga, Murcia and the Central Operating Unit (U.C.O.). Likewise, due to the dangerousness of the perpetrators and the seriousness of the facts investigated, it was necessary to act by the Rapid Action Group (GAR) and the Special Intervention Unit (UEI) to secure the home and arrest the the authors.
