Published by GBC News

A Spanish woman failed to appear in court this morning to face charges of threatening a woman with a box cutter.

Algeciras resident, Silvia Valverde Rios, is alleged to have threatened another woman following a football match between Gibraltar Wave and Hercules on the 15th of November.

Ms Valverde, a Hercules player, reportedly engaged in an altercation after the final whistle and was arrested later that evening near the border.

She was scheduled to appear at the Magistrates' Court this morning and a warrant for her arrest was issued following her non-appearance.
