A 65-YEAR-OLD British man was stabbed in the neck during an argument over a debt at a bus stop on the A-387 road in Mijas, according to Spanish Press reports.
The attacker, a Spanish man to whom he allegedly owed money for some building work, handed himself in to the Guardia Civil.
He claimed he had stabbed the victim with a screwdriver, but doctors said the injuries were caused with a knife.
Witnesses who saw the victim was bleeding called the emergency services and an ambulance was sent to the scene as well as the Guardia Civil.
The victim, who was taken to the Costa del Sol Hospital in Marbella, also sustained injuries to his arms. Although his condition was reported to be serious, the Guardia Civil informed that the injuries were not life-threatening.
