OVIEDO — Police are investigating claims neo-Nazi thugs carved a swastika on the face of a woman.
The 24-year-old, who is a member of the communist party, told officers two men cut the Nazi symbol into her skin with a knife.
The newspaper 'La Nueva España' reported how the woman was attacked on the doorstep of her house in Oviedo in northern Spain.
She went to the door after two supposed friends said they were calling and rang her buzzer.
When she opened to door, she came face to face with two men dressed in neo-Nazi uniform who attacked her.
A spokesman for the regional government of Asturias, which includes Oviedo, said: "We want to make this public to try to eradicate this type of violent conduct which does not have a place in a democracy like ours."
The left-wing party Izquierda Unida in Oviedo said they were "absolutely repulsed" by this type of violence of "fascist aggression".
A police investigation is underway.
The woman asked for her identity not to be revealed.
