THE National Police have arrested two men for a knife attack in Palma de Mallorca, Spain, which left two people seriously injured.
A manhunt was launched by the Homicide Group to find the assailants after a double stabbing on Calle Manacor in the Soledad district last weekend. One of the victims suffered three stab wounds to his liver where he remains in critical condition at Son Espases Hospital. The other had a hammer thrown at him and was also stabbed, but is now in a stable condition.
After tracing the car used by the aggressors, the officers were able to identify the two men who were taken into custody on Thursday (December 6).
Police have revealed that the two men have an extensive criminal history, which includes previous arrests for assault, intimidation with violence and theft, where both are are considered to be extremely dangerous by police.
In 2016, they were arrested for similar attack where they jumped on a man wielding a knife, however fortunately for the victim, he managed to escape unharmed. As Euro Weekly News understands, they were acquitted for this crime due to the victim not showing up to court on the day of their trial.
The men will remain in custody until their trial next year and have been charged for attempted murder.
