This is the dramatic moment cops arrest two alleged armed robbers during a bank heist in the middle of a Spanish tourist town.
The incident took place at around 2pm at a branch of La Caixa bank in the resort town of Estepona in the province of Malaga located in the southern Spanish region of Andalusia when two suspects reportedly entered the premises dressed as postmen.
Reports said that the men were armed and used people inside the bank as hostages.
When the cops arrived on the scene, a National Police negotiator communicated with the suspects through a megaphone.
After a while, the police expert managed to convince the robbers to give themselves up peacefully.
In the footage, the negotiator is heard saying: “Come out quietly. Throw your weapons to the ground and place your hands on your head.”
The suspects are then seen leaving the bank and voluntarily lying on the pavement.
A team of armed police moves in and arrests the pair on the ground outside the bank entrance.
The negotiator assures the detainees as they are being cuffed: “Easy. Nothing will happen here, okay?”
The suspects are then bundled into separate police vehicles.
The investigation continues.
