Police restrained the Paguera bar attacker. | R.D.


Three people suffered minor wounds during an incident at a bar in Paguera yesterday afternoon. At around 17.20, a middle-aged Spanish man, with a history of robbery with violence and other offences, got into an argument with another person and pulled a knife. He left and then returned with a shotgun. While customers at the bar took cover, he was tackled by another man, who threw him to the ground. In the process, the shotgun was fired and three women were injured. They were attended by medics and didn't require hospital treatment.

The man tried to leave the scene, resisting arrest by Calvia police officers, who were able to restrain him and seize the knife and the shotgun.
