Brit stab­ber ar­rested

Costa Levante News - - NEWS -

A BRI­TISH man was se­ri­ously in­jured out­side a cock­tail bar in Mo­raira last week­end, fol­low­ing a heated dis­cus­sion about driv­ing.

A 45-year-old Columbian man, who had fled the scene be­fore the Guardia Civil ar­rived, has now been ar­rested. He ap­par­ently stabbed the Bri­ton three times with a bot­tle – twice in the torso and once in the leg. A Do­mini­can man, aged 41, has also been ar­rested.

The Bri­ton had been in­volved in an ar­gu­ment with the two ac­cused ear­lier that evening, and a few hours later, they all ap­peared at the same cock­tail bar, where the ar­gu­ment re­sumed. This led to a ‘great brawl in which at least seven peo­ple took part’, the Guardia Civil said in a state­ment.

Dur­ing the fight, sev­eral men were in­jured by kicks and punches, but then the fight es­ca­lated when the Columbian man broke a bot­tle and thrust it into the Bri­ton three times.

When the Guardia Civil ar­rived at the scene, the two ac­cused had dis­ap­peared, but af­ter sev­eral days of in­spect­ing CCTV and gath­er­ing de­scrip­tions, the two were fi­nally lo­cated.

They were ar­rested when the Guardia Civil found mo­bile phone footage of the bar on the Do­mini­can man’s mo­bile phone.

The Bri­tish man was trans­ferred to Dé­nia Hos­pi­tal in a se­ri­ous con­di­tion. He will also be in­ves­ti­gated for al­legedly kick­ing the Do­mini­can man, break­ing his wrist.
