A MAN who allegedly stabbed another man in the leg has been arrested in Salobreña by the Guardia Civil.
The incident took place on February 7 at around 3am in Calle Carretera de la Playa in Salobreña, when the victim and the 31-year-old arrested man reportedly got involved in a fight.
The detainee allegedly stabbed the other man up to three times in the thigh with a kitchen knife, then went back to his home while the victim took shelter at the home of one of his relatives.
A neighbour alerted the Guardia Civil officers who could not find anyone at the scene when they arrived but followed a trail of blood back to the victim, who was lying down on a sofa, bleeding profusely.
One of the officers placed a tourniquet around the victim’s leg and he was taken to Motril hospital, where he underwent a surgery.
The victim had not revealed the identity of his attacker but the Guardia Civil investigation lead to the man they have now arrested, who has an extensive criminal record.
Local Police picked up the man, who allegedly resisted arrest, and carried out a home search, where they report they found the knife and a bloody piece of cloth.
