The Reserve and Security Groups (GRS) of the Civil Guard ended the resistance of the man who remained barricaded and armed in his house in Fuensalida, Toledo. The guards had to shoot the man in the leg after he rushed at them with a knife when they entered his house. Normality returned to Fuensalida after residents were confined to their homes by order of the police during the event.
Miguel Ángel barricaded himself at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, although he went to the street on several occasions to confront the Civil Guard. The officers tried to get him to drop the gun he was holding, yelling: “Calm down, get on the ground, drop the gun and let’s talk. Far from attending to the guards’ pleas, the rooted man replied, “I’m yours, remember.”
The dangerous situation continued as time passed, causing guards to block the streets and neighbors to stay in their homes for safety. The rooted man also did not stop his behavior despite his insistence on being a negotiator for the Civil Guard and his presence in the area of the GRS ready to intervene.
After analyzing the videos, which proved that the man’s barricaded gun could be compressed air, and following the stubborn nature of the man, the guards decided to enter the house early in the day. Once there, Miguel Ángel shot them with a crossbow and attacked them with a large katana, trying to stab them several times until one of the guards wounded him. one shot on one leg.
The rooted man already starred in a similar event in 2011
The man was immediately transferred to Toledo University Hospital, where he remains detained and monitored by the Civil Guard while he receives the necessary medical care.
At his home, agents seized several knives, a compressed air weapon, and a crossbow with arrows. The Civil Guard charges GRS with the crimes of threats, resistance, disobedience, assault on law enforcement officers, and attempted murder for detaining him.
Known to his neighbors, Miguel Ángel suffered for many years from a mental illness that caused his parents to leave the house.
In 2011, he was involved in a very serious incident similar to the one in the last few hours, also in Fuensalida. This is how he rooted himself for the first time, and a guard was injured with a crossbow bolt.
