The massive bottles add a new day of incidents this weekend. The National Police has already arrested 60 people for the incidents that occurred this Saturday night and at dawn on Sunday during a macro-bottle in the Parque del Oeste in Madrid. This has been indicated by the Government delegate in Madrid, Mercedes González, after participating in the acts of the patron of the Madrid Civil Guard at the Batalla del Salado barracks.
At first, 55 young people were arrested after violent altercations, robberies of adolescents who were gathered there, and for stoning and throwing objects at Municipal and National Police officers, forcing the use of riot gear. The mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, has assured this Monday that several of those detainees belong to organized gangs, as he has stated in an interview in Onda Madrid collected by Europa Press.
Six of the detainees have gone to court and it is expected that the rest will be transferred before the Court over the next few hours or this Tuesday. Likewise, Samur Protección-Civil treated a total of 10 people with alcohol poisoning, in addition to nine young people with minor injuries. This Monday is the fourth day of the Pilar bridge in which the police force will remain in the Madrid park, although no relevant incidents were repeated the previous day on Sunday.
For her part, the president of the Community of Madrid, Isabel Díaz Ayuso, has requested this Monday Mercedes González to act against people “who take advantage” of the bottles to commit acts of vandalism. In addition, as Europa Press collects in response to the questions from journalists at the Reina Sofía Art Center, Ayuso has focused on the fact that “the fault is not so much the bottle itself as the people who take advantage of these concentrations, of young people, to commit acts of vandalism, robbery and fights “.
“As it is a phenomenon that directly concerns security, we once again ask the Government Delegation to act,” he indicated, while also requesting it to do so with squatting or crime in the capital. The Madrilenian leader has requested that she help local police officers throughout the region so that “they can confront these people who take advantage of the bottles to commit serious altercations.”
