An off-duty Police officer has arrested a 34-year-oll Bulgarian man, with previous police convictions.
The man is accused of making serious threats, after which, it is alleged, he held a knife to the throat of the man.
The victim told the agent that they had argued moments before and after trying to grab the knife he escaped fearing that without the intervention of police, the aggressor would have killed him.
After identifying himself as a police officer he ordered the aggressor to calm down and drop the weapon.
The man was arrested and sent to court in Arrecife.
