ARREST – Violence offences

Sanhayi Daabouzi NASSER, a 35 year old Spanish national of Moroccan decent, resident in Gibraltar, was arrested by Police yesterday at Flat Bastion Road for violence related offences.

Following a report from a member of the public alleging to have been threatened with a knife and assaulted in his residence and extensive damage having been caused to the residence by his assailant a Police operation involving shift uniformed personnel, K9 (Dog unit) and Firearms officers was implemented.

Officers had to force their way into the residence and a police dog had to be deployed to restrain the assailant who was being aggressive towards the officers. Once restrained by the officers, the individual was arrested and subsequently conveyed to St Bernard’s Hospital to be treated for dog bite injuries sustained whilst resisting arrest.

On his return to NMH Nasser was interviewed by the investigating officers and later charged with:
Threats to Kill
Criminal Damage
Assault on Police
Resisting Arrest

He was refused bail and was detained in Police Custody pending his appearance in court later today.
