LOCAL POLICE in Rojales have arrested two men – aged 29 and 33 – as the alleged perpetrators of a hit and run of a motorcyclist as he left Almoradí. The 78-year old victim came from the nearby town of Dolores.
The incident happened earlier in the month and the arrests were made after a major investigation that included police officers from five local municipalities and a series of witness statements.
In the hours after the crime, local police from Rojales toured the area looking for the car that was involved after witnesses gave a description of the vehicle involved. Eventually it was found parked next to the Rojales Health Centre, close to the police headquarters and the Guardia Civil were informed for the next stage of the investigation.
The Mayor of Rojales, Antonio Pérez, congratulated the Local Police for the professionalism of the officers in helping solve the case so quickly and that it’s proof once again than collaboration between police and other organisations is vital to continue with the security of our citizens after such events”.
The arrested duo have been charged with homicide and leaving the scene of the crime without attending to the victim.
