Hi Jim,

First off, I'm sorry to hear of your nasty experience. It must have really spoilt your holiday.

Unfortuantely, now you're back in your home country, it'll be that much more of a pain to organise this report you need.

Currently, the only ways to report a crime in Tenerife are in person at a police station, or by phone.

Obviously, the phone option is the only one available to you. The number is 0034 902 102 112. When someone answers, say "English please" and you will be put through to an English speaker.

Filling in a form over the phone can take quite a bit of time, so, as you'll be making an international call, be prepared for a sizable charge on your phone bill.

I'm not sure what the attitude is of the police to sending reports to another country. You could always ask if they will email it to you or even fax it.

There's also the possibility that they may just say you should have reported it while you were still on the island.

In any event, I wish you luck with getting this issue sorted.
