A 60-YEAR-OLD has been arrested and remanded into custody following the fatal stabbing of a homeless man in Valencia on Christmas Eve last year.
A Local Police patrol found the lifeless body of the victim, 64, in front of a bench in Paza Marti Grajales at around 4.30am. He had been stabbed in the chest and the knife used was found nearby.
The National Police took over the investigation and thanks to evidence collected at the scene and an “arduous investigation”, they identified the suspect as a Lithuanian homeless man with a police record, who used to sleep where the body of the victim was found.
