Youth Arrested for Aggression

A 22-year-old boy was arrested this morning by the Public Security Police (PSP) for causing damage to several vehicles, as well as assaulting a woman.

Police sources confirmed that the PSP were called out initially to Bairro das Romeiras, Santo António late yesterday afternoon (26/05/20), to stop the man and his associates from causing a disturbance at a local bar.  However, by the end of the evening having consumed both alcohol and drugs the 22-year-old was hell-bent on causing as much trouble as possible and damaged several cars and attacked a woman.

Luckily the PSP arrived in time to prevent the woman’s family and car owners from taking matters into their own hands.

The young man was detained by PSP agents and taken to hospital.
