This photo received in the last sixty seconds of a man who made a failed robbery attempt within the last two minutes on Barcelona’s subway system.


We’ll update you as more information arrives.


17:58hrs: Happening in Urquinaona metro.
17:59hrs: He has just gotten on a train on the red line from Urquinaona.
18:00hrs: The attempt involved trying to isolate the victim between two robbers, to distract.
18:02hrs: They were attempting to steal the bag. They communicated that the intended victim was intending to leave the train at that station. The intended victim was aware of what they were doing, however, so she maneuvered her way out of the situation.
18:04hrs: Robber, pictured, has a mobile which he’s pretending to speak into, white earphones and sunglasses. There are two in the team.
18:06hrs: Also carrying a plastic bag. Another photo coming-up.
18:09hrs: Intended victim had enough composure to take a few photos. This one shows the robber walking away.
