LOCAL POLICE in Murcia have arrested a young man for allegedly assaulting his partner in the heart of city.

Authorities were called about 5am on Tuesday morning by a concerned passer-by that saw a man hitting a woman on Calle Rodríguez de la Fuente.  When the police arrived, they found the couple – a 20-year-old man and an 18-year-old woman and both Moroccan – still fighting in the street.  After intervening to separate them, they found the woman had suffered cuts and bruises to her face.

The witness that called the police was able to give them a very detailed description of what happened, and coupled with what the officers saw for themselves resulted in the man being arrested and taken to the police station at El Carmen where legal proceedings have been put into operation.

The young female victim of the attack didn’t require any urgent medical treatment at the scene.
