Two arrested in car chase and shoot out

Two arrested in 10km car chase come shoot out
N-332 connects Valencia along the coast to Vera, through Benidorm and Alicante.

BENIDORM’S National Police arrested two men last week who were involved in a car chase come shoot out between La Vilajoyosa and the city.

The chase began in La Vilajoyosa at around 7.15pm last Thursday night.

A row is said to have erupted outside the El Fogon de Gonzalo restaurant on the N-332 which prompted the chase.

Four cars raced down the road at high speed, their drivers andpassengers firing at each other.

Many neighbours called the emergency services but by this time the cars had already covered several kilometres, still firing at each other and crashing into each other.

It was not until the chase arrived in Benidorm that two men were arrested whilst the rest managed to flee.

Anyone with any information should contact Benidorm’s National Police.
