Man charged with Eastern beach stabbing

In Court

Following the incident on April 17, in Eastern Beach Road, where a young local man was stabbed in the leg as a result of a fight, police have charged another local man David Da Palma Costa, 18, of 21 Med View terrace.

A search was carried out for Da Palma Costa at the time of the incident but this proved fruitless.

RGP (Royal Gibraltar Police) said yesterday that information was received that Da Palma Costa had left Gibraltar.

The victim of the assault suffered a wound to his left thigh area and after being treated in hospital he was allowed to leave.

Yesterday Da Palma Costa was arrested for the offence of wounding and interviewed. He was subsequently charged with one count of wounding and bailed out pending his court appearance tomorrow.

Prison for Jewel Thief

Spanish national José Antonio Higuera Aguilera, 44, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison, after being convicted of two charges of burglary and one charge of attempted burglary.

The burglaries were committed in dwelling houses during July and August 2004.

Higuera Aguilera stole approximately £35,000 worth of jewellery from one of the said dwellings. He has been in custody since his arrest last year.

Arrests in Burglary case

Police reported that early yesterday a burglary was committed at a local take away in the area of Water Gardens.

The alleged culprits are said to have broken the front door and allegedly attempted to steal monies from one of the poker machines from within the establishment. Nothing was stolen as RGP officers were alerted of the burglary in progress.

Meanwhile, three men namely Jason Gordon, 27, of 7 Goole House, Anthony Mauro, 17 of 11 Sommerset Court, and Zaide Attou Dob 19 of 11/1 Paradise Ramp, were subsequently interviewed and charged with a count of burglary and have been bailed out to appear at the Magistrates Court today.
