One of the aggressors approach the young man and commented on his T-shirt which had a slogan including the words “working class”.

The man attempted to flee from his attacker. A further nine people soon appeared and caught up with the man as he attempted to flee. He was cornered in a doorway and then attacked by the group.

The young man was able to escape. He headed to a nearby bar and took refuge. Once the assailants had left the area the man headed to the local medical centre. He was injured during the brutal beating and received treatment from medics at the centre.

The victim is only 22 years old. According to Susana Gisbert, the delegated prosecutor for hate crimes in Valencia, a medical report showing the injuries has been provided so the proceedings will be examined by a magistrate’s court.
