Police are seeking two north Africans for an assault and robbery on a British couple in Costa del Silencio. The attack happened on Wednesday evening near the Chayofita complex on the main road running the length of Silencio past the bath fountain where the totem used to be.
The thieves got away with a gold necklace worn by the man after dragging the couple to the floor. They had been simply walking along the pavement on Avenida José Antonio Tavío. Both victims were taken to a hospital in Playa de las Américas for treatment for various injuries.
The robbers, who fled on foot, are described as being between 17 and 20 years of age. El Dia
