Elderly tourists attacked in Albufeira

Two women described as “elderly foreign tourists” were attacked on Monday afternoon as they walked through an area of scrubland near Albufeira’s Alpinus hotel.

Police say a group of three muggers was hiding on the land, and threw the couple to the ground, making off with a gold chain from one of the women’s necks.

One of the victims suffered “injuries to her knees”, reports Correio da Manhã.
