According to a report, the false emergency call to 112 number that reported a brawl led to 22 officers from local police and Guardia Civil being called out. A Servicio de Atención Médica de Urgencia (SAMU) health unit was also dispatched, Sueca City said in a statement.
On Sunday, August 15, at 2:25 AM, the local police received a report that 40 people had been attacked, three were stabbed and two were unconscious. They also have knives and said they would go after guns.
According to the witness, he was at Perello campsite in Valencia.
Guardia Civil and the Local Police arrived at the campsite within minutes to address the emergency. Citizen Security Units of the Guardia Civil (USECI), were also mobilized immediately, the report added.
The campsite’s staff reported on arrival that there was no evidence of any fights and that surveillance of the entire facility had not revealed any signs of an incident. Also, the people who reported the emergency weren’t present on the scene.
The Local Police conducted investigations and confirmed that the alleged emergency caller was 26-years-old, the report said.
Carlos Ramirez (City Councilman for Public Safety) warned that this behavior could disrupt the emergency system and put at risk the lives of those who really need it or require urgent medical attention.
He stressed that false calls also affect the response time for real services and emergencies.
He also stated that this type of behavior could lead to financial sanctions of up to 600,000.00 euros.
