The victim this time was “stabbed in the back”, but managed to “ask for help at the local fire station”, so “when the GNR arrived at the scene, around 01:30am, he was already being assisted”.

The man was transported to hospital, in a serious condition. Due to the seriousness of the crime, the “investigation has been passed to the Judiciary Police”, said a GNR official.

The victim attacked on Wednesday was accompanied by three other tourists, and was the target of a robbery, plus two cell phones were stolen. It is not yet know whether yesterday’s crime was also a robbery.
