The Machico Public Security Police (PSP) has arrested a man who tried to rob a bank twice this month in Caniçal.
The 38-year-old male attempted to rob a Santander branch on the 1st and 5th of August. His first attempt was seen as a bungled affair without any real planning or purpose, but for the second he was slightly more determined as he broke the bank’s glass door with a concrete block. He was later arrested by the PSP, who had him sent to the Dr Nelio Mendonça Hospital for psychiatric evaluation and hospitalisation.
