Man with unfortunate name is arrested

The Spanish press never reveal the surnames of suspects arrested. Instead, in an attempt to preserve privacy while letting the readers try to guess who it is, they give out the first names and the initials of the surnames – i.e, Juan Jose P.A., 37, of Madrid. Which often makes for an interesting guessing game.

However, ocassionaly a name comes along which breaks this system. Such as the 37 year old from Albox arrested yesterday on suspicion of rape, a fellow with the mesmerising name of “Fructuoso Patricio T.M.”.

I don’t care what the surname is – how many people called “Fructuoso Patricio” are there in Albox?
