An elderly couple, thought to be tourists, are in hospital today after being mugged in San Eugenio last night. Emergency services say they were called out just before 11pm with reports of the robbery in Avda. Los Pueblos, and that the 74-year-old woman and 77-year-old man had been transferred to Hospiten Sur where their injuries are said to be moderate and their conditions not to be serious. Avda. Los Pueblos is a long road running from the Magma Centre to the CC San Eugenio and then up to the TF1: the robbery took place in what police describe as a “residential part” of the road.
