November 23, at approximately 5.30pm, two young boys, aged 12, were sitting at the side of the road on their schoolbags having a drink of water in the Calahonda / Riviera del Sol area when a white transit van, with at least two male occupants, approached and parked near to them. Suddenly, two men jumped out of the van and tried to grab the boys. The boys panicked and ran off, and one of the youngsters managed to escape their reach, but the other was grabbed by the men. Luckily, the boys are both over 5ft tall and between them were able to fight the attackers off and escape.
