POLICE have arrested six people in the break-up of a violent gang that robbed tourists in Marbella, in some cases choking their victims unconscious before snatching luxury watches or other valuables.
Officers recovered 10 watches valued at a total of €400,000, said National Police officials last week.
They said the suspects, all Algerian men aged 26 to 33, targeted mainly wealthy-looking and often elderly or visibly inebriated foreign tourists in the Puerto Banús area.
