Ibiza Easter holiday warning over terrifying robberies after Brit has £83,000 watch stolen by bat-wielding gang
A BRITISH man had his £83,000 designer watch ripped off his wrist by a bat-wielding gang in a harrowing hold-up in Spain.
The masked bandits are believed to have forced the terrified victim to pull his car over before smashing his windscreen as he drove near a beach in Ibiza.
The desperate Brit is understood to have tried to defend himself before being overpowered during the daylight robbery on Tuesday.
Local paper Periodico de Ibiza reported the victim had been driving near hippie hangout Benirras Beach in the north of the island when the attack took place.
The paper reported the victim as British.
The Civil Guard, said to be treating the incident as a planned attack, could not be reached on Thursday for comment.
