The 35-year-old man, who has not been named, has been charged with extortion and resisting arrest by police in Legnano, near Milan in Italy.

The migrant, who had been turning up to the city centre bar every day for the past 10 days, sometimes several times a day, hurled death threats, insults and became violent after his demands for free food and drink were denied by the barman.

After the police were called, the man then turned on the officers, punching and kicking them as he resisted arrest although the authorities were eventually able to overpower the migrant.

The Moroccoan man is believed to have a regular residence permit and is already known to the local police having been convicted of drug dealing charges in the past, according to local media reports.

A record number of 171,000 migrants crossed the Mediterranean to Italy last year, according to official figures.

The country’s asylum system has been placed under severe strain with the various centres coping with a total of 176,000 migrants across its reception centres.

A recent report from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) indicated that 88 per cent of migrants that arrived in Italy came from Libya in north Africa.
