British fugitive, identified by his tattoos, arrested in San Fulgencio

A 34-year-old English man has been arrested in San Fulgencio after police were able to identify him by his tattoos. The detainee had a European Arrest and Extradition Order issued against him by the United Kingdom.
The arrest came about as a result of a coordinated operation between Spanish and UK police after officials learned that the fugitive was hiding out in the Alicante province.
After initial investigations into his whereabouts were carried out, officers tracked the man to an address in San Fulgencio. The arrest was executed by Judicial Police with the support of San Fulgencio’s own Local Police force.
At the time of his arrest, despite the fact that the fugitive did not carry any type of identification documents, police were able to identify him by one of his tattoos. This key piece of intel was provided in advance of the arrest to Spanish police by their UK counterparts.
The man is accused of assault, death threats and damages following an alleged attack that occurred in 2019 in the town of South Ockendon, Essex (United Kingdom). The man is alleged to have kicked down the door of a house in which his son lived with his ex-partner before allegedly violently attacking the woman’s face and body and threatening that he was going to kill her. The victim was able to escape thanks to the help of a neighbour. The man now faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.
