CRIME OF ROBBERY
You tipifican in the Penal Spanish Code, in the article 237 at the 242, both inclusive, pointing out the art. 237 that: They are "criminals of the robbery crime those that, with spirit of lucre, you apoderaren of the other people's things furniture using force in the things to consent to the place where these are or violence or intimidation in people."
Also and for their importance, we will point out that the article 238, it establishes some robbery types increased by the circumstances that make an appointment in the same one, it points out the article that, they are criminals of the robbery crime with force in the things "those that execute the fact when some of the following circumstances converges:

The article 240, it points out: "The robbery culprit with force in the things will be punished with the prison pain from one to three years."
Among the robberies with increased pain, from two to five years of prison, you tipifica in the art. 242 of the Penal Code, "To the robbery culprit with violence or intimidation in people..."
Some particularities, from the point of view jurisprudencial:
They show the housing condition or home the autocaravanas, roullotes or campaign stores that use with character newspaper or permanent to eat, to rest or to sleep. To be entered he/she specifies judicial commandment if the holder (STS 419/2000) doesn't consent, but whenever it consists credited the use class to that it is dedicated.
He/she marries inhabited it is considered home of the art. 18.2 CE "the space capable environment for the development of the private life, although it is eventual." Their external signs should reveal their holder's clear will of excluding this space and the activity in him developed to the knowledge and interferences of third.
Not it is applicable if one declares that the house was uninhabited.
Violence this can consist on a mere push "without causing lesion some" (STS 833/98 OF 17 -6) or in the struggle with the victim to take possession of the handbag.
The "Tug" of a handbag made from a vehicle in march is robbery and it cannot be considered attenuated by the "scarce violence" (STS 358/2000)
To snatch a minor the chain that took to the neck giving him/her for it a "tug" constitutes robbery equally.

They are in fact those 400 euros, what establishes the difference between a crime and a lack (art.623.1CP).
In fact, the art. 623 of the penal Code, it points out: They will be punished with permanent localization from four to 12 days or it fines from one to two months: 1. Those that make theft, if the value of that stolen didn't exceed of 400 euros."

The one that sustrajere a vehicle to motor or other people's autocycle whose value excediere of fifty thousand pesetas, without spirit to appropriate it, it will be punished with the arrest pain from twelve to twenty-four weekends or it fines from three to eight months if the restituyere, direct or indirectly in a term non superior at forty eight hours, without in any case the imposed pain can be same or superior to which would correspond if you will adapt definitively of the vehicle.

A paragraph second it is added to the section 1 of the article 244, for which carries out at least four times the actions of the article 623.3 of the Penal (subtraction without spirit of appropriation of a vehicle) Code.
CRIME OF IT SWINDLES
They make swindle those that with spirit of lucre, utilizaren enough deceit to produce an error in other, inducing it to carry out a disposition act in own or other people's damage.
The difference with the Undue Appropriation, is that in this the delivery of the thing is made by virtue of some of the titles of the art. 252, what determines that the active fellow's initial possession is licit. Being this way, the deceit that possibly can be used to facilitate or to hide the later appropriation it doesn't transform to the fact into swindle.
The difference with the falsehoods is confused, when the falsification of a document is the deceiving mean that is used to produce the defraudación.
The deceit, is the most characteristic element in the swindle. Not all deceit is able to integrate the swindle: it must be "enough" about a deceit. The concretion of that sufficiency is made, in general, differing among an objective module, referred to the half man, and of the one that is derived the demand of a minimum certain condition, and a subjective module, complementary of the previous one.
Not it is enough to appreciate the swindle, in general, the simple lie, because it would be equal it to criminalize for swindle all the unfulfilled promises
The relationship of causation that he/she should mediate among the different elements of the crime present must be also: the deceiving behavior is cause of the error, and this of the disposition act that, in turn, it determines, as effect, the damage. The common thing is that the deceit precedes to the disposition act.
The damage must be real, effective, rateable economically and of certain or determinable entity, because its concretion is necessary for the qualification of the fact as crime or like lack.
