Taxi driver attacked in Puerto de la Cruz
Last week, National Police officers from Puerto de la Cruz arrested two people who had attacked a taxi driver in the district of El Toscal/La Longuera in Los Realejos at about 5.15am on Monday morning. The taxi driver had picked up three young people at the bus station of Puerto de la Cruz. First they wanted to be driven to a discotheque. But on the way there one of the passengers decided to make a change and asked to be taken to La Vera. There he got out of the car and paid five euros. The other two wanted to be taken to El Toscal. At the finish one of them suddenly pulled the handbrake on while the other choked the driver from behind. He was also threatened with a knife. The taxi driver asked to be allowed to leave the car and told them to take what they wanted. They took the taxi's cash register and the driver's private wallet with them. They stole a total of €80. The taxi driver reported the incident to the National Police. At the police station he was shown photos of criminals known to the police, in which he recognised one of the perpetrators. Shortly afterwards, he and his accomplice were arrested.
