A GUARD working at a metro station in Barcelona, Spain, has been brutally attacked by a ten-strong group in an unprovoked attack this morning (Saturday, December 14).
The incident occurred just after 6am at Urquinaona station, when a group made up of five individuals, which included 3 women and 2 men, attempted to sneak onto the train without paying.
Doing his job as he rightly should do, the security guard approached the group and politely asked them to pay the correct fair before boarding.
Evidently disgusted to be rebuked, the group began to insult the man and threatened him with death before launching a horrifying surprise attack. Biting and kicking him, the victim was pushed to the ground, sustaining deep wounds to his cheekbone, chin and hands.
If that wasn’t enough, another group made up of 5 people saw what happened, and instead of running to his help, they threw glass bottles at the injured man lying on the floor. Two other security guards rushed to stop the attack but also ended up being beaten and bitten.
As Euro Weekly News understands, the group fled on foot and so far, one man has been arrested. The National Police are now going through CCTV footage in hope they can bring the others responsible for this brutal attack to justice.
Officers believe that the individuals involved had just left a nearby nightclub and were intoxicated at the time.
The victim was subsequently admitted to the Vall d’Hebrón hospital and will undergo several grafts to reconstruct his facial wounds.
