Police are seeking the attacker of a 24-year-old Costa del Silencio man in Las Galletas on Saturday. The assault occurred as a brawl broke out in one of the town’s main streets, and the injured man was taken with multiple stab wounds, especially to the chest area, to Candelaria Hospital where he remains in the Intensive Care Unit. A friend of his was also injured in the fight but not seriously. Police say that the alleged assailant they are seeking is a 22-year-old from the Spanish mainland, and who appears to have been a known acquaintance of his victim.
