A man who set off two homemade explosives outside his ex-wife’s house in Santa Pola on Monday has been arrested by the Guardia Civil. The 45-year-old, who has a restraining order out against him, let off two devices outside the door of the home within the space of 50 minutes, with his estranged partner calling the authorities.

The Guardia detained him after they spotted him walking outside the home with a plastic bottle filled with a substance, just as he was getting ready to set off another explosion. It was revealed that he had been previously arrested on two occasions for breaking restraining orders involving his ex-wife,  which were imposed on the grounds of domestic violence, and was also the subject of a restraining order with another woman.
