Update 30 August: The Guardia Civil has arrested a 31-year-oldVenezuelan man in connection with this attack. It transpires that the 32-year-old victim of the assault was an Ecuadorean; he was hit on the head with a large piece of wood, the blow causing loss of brain matter.
A Guardia Civil patrol managed to pick up the aggressor almost immediately in the same area: he is likely to appear in Court tomorrow. Police enquiries continue, including into the motive, which is currently unknown. Police sources say that the man under arrest has been imputed for attempted murder, though this could change to actual murder if the victim were to die. PV
