BILBAO — A taxi-driver had his throat cut by an attacker but managed to make a desperate call for help to colleagues over the radio.

Some drivers arrived at the scene and managed to corner the suspect before police got there.

The 40-year-old driver died later from his injuries.

Police arrested a 20-year-old and had to call in reinforcements because they feared the station where he was being held might be overrun by angry colleagues of the dead taxi-driver.

The attack happened in Bilbao the early hours of the morning when the attacker slit the driver's jugular vein.

The married father-of-two managed to call colleagues who alerted police for help.  

The young suspect was covered in blood when he was arrested. He admitted to having a struggle with the driver.

Even after his arrest, taxi-drivers threatened to break-in to the police station and there was a clash between drivers and police which left some officers with slight injuries.
