The Ertzaintza has arrested another on Thursday in Baracaldo less for the brutal beating he received Alexander Ionota, a young man from 23 years, in the Biscayan town of Amorebieta. The events occurred in the early morning of the past July 25 and, with this arrest, they amount to 14 the detainees in the operative. They all belong to The Koala Brothers, a dangerous gang that lurks large bottles and that, according to the investigation, could be involved in a wave of robberies that occurred in Castro Urdiales (Cantabria) at the beginning of summer.

In any case, the Policeman Basque Autonomous Community, in collaboration with the Amorebieta Urban Guard, keeps the operation open to try to identify and locate those around the score of people who participated in the aggression. A total of seven of the 14 detainees so far they are minors old.

The beating they gave Alexander caused the young man to be admitted to the Cruces Hospital, where it remains in coma. There, the doctors, who recognize the serious prognosis of the victim, have performed a tracheostomy and do not know if he will be able to regain speech. Despite this, it is not the first time that the aggressors, The Koala Brothers, they act in violation of the law. Several of them accumulate up to five years of criminal history.

In fact, as reported by the Basque Country Security Minister, Josu Erkoreka, this “violent gang” is already a gang known for State Security Forces and Bodies in that community. So much so that in the organization they coexist two generations with members ranging from 15 to the 38 years. For example, one of the adult members arrested for the brutal beating of the young man Alexander has been a member of the band for 20 years.

According to the research, however, the Ertzaintza believes that The Koala Brothers does not have more than 30 active members14 detainees ya—, where the majority are minors. Hence the difficulty of justice to prosecute these minors. In the case of the beating Alexander, for example, there are seven arrested that do not reach the 18 years.

On ‘modus operandi’

The Koala Brothers They usually act at night, just as they did in the Jauregibarria park, which became a mousetrap for Alexander from which he could not flee. The violent members of this group then surround their victim until they leave her badly injured for later rob him their belongings. As suspected by the Ertzaintza, the night of the beating of the young man 23 years of Lemoa, attacked others four young.

In fact, this violent gang does not care to hide its misdeeds. They are the ones who they record their actions and upload them to networks. This is accredited in the images that have been shared in which the young people hit mercilessly to Alexander while exclaiming “Kill him, record that!” This has allowed the Basque police to identify and ultimately arrest several of them.

Images of the brutal group beating, spread by the attackers on social networks.

Nevertheless, The Koala Brothers They are not the only band that is campaigning for him Basque Country —And presumably also by Cantabria– spreading terror. Apparently, there are several groups of this nature, with whom they meet to hit each other. For instance, The country already indicated in 2019 that Ertzaintza had located at least 24 of these groups for all autonomy.

But, according to research, The Koala Brothers are the alleged perpetrators of the brutal assault on 23 year old, so new arrests are not ruled out. At the moment, the Durango court investigating the case this week ordered the imprisonment of another young man from 18 years arrested on Tuesday in Bilbao, with what they already are five the detainees whom the judge has sent to the jail.
