A YOUNG man who stepped in to defend a young woman being attacked by her partner in Murcia had his face beaten to a pulp after the aggressor turned on him.
The attack in the early hours of Saturday night at the entrance to a disco was so brutal is left 23-year old Raul unconscious on the ground.
He told Spanish press the aggressor had kept on hitting him until he “got tired.”
Raul has since had to undergo an eye operation due to the injuries he sustained.
The youngster from Puente Tocinos reportedly went to the woman’s assistance after hearing the sounds of blows and screams coming from an alleyway. He recognised the 20-year attacking the woman and asked him to stop, but was told to keep his nose out of the couple’s business.
Raul told Spanish media that at this point the aggressor banged the woman’s head against a van. He tried to diffuse the situation once again, inviting the 20-year to a drink inside.
At this point, the aggressor grabbed Raul’s arms and started punching him.
Raul’s friends told him the beating went on for several minutes after he was laid out on floor.
