A 44-year-old woman has been arrested by Local Police in Malaga for allegedly hitting her husband in the face with a hammer at their home in Huelin, Malaga.

Then 24 reports that the incident took place at 11:30 pm last Friday, May 28. The man then made his own way to the municipal shelter on Góngora street to seek help for a bleeding wound on his cheekbone.
According to the victim, his partner jumped on him and hit him in the face with a hammer after they had an argument. The woman did this in front of their 5-year-old child.
The victim explained that this was not the first time the two had come to blows after an argument. Allegedly, she had also hit him on the head with a hammer, however, he did not denounce her “for fear of being arrested”, according to the police.
The Police went to the location of the house and the young boy opened the door, explaining that his mother had beaten his father with a hammer and he was now bleeding.
The woman then alleged that her partner had become very violent and that she had used the hammer in self-defence. She said that she kept the hammer under the sofa.
Following the arrest of the woman, she was taken to an outpatient clinic for a medical examination. Her son has been left in the custody of her partner while police investigate the case.
