Faro: two young people arrested for attempted murder

FARO: TWO YOUNG PEOPLE ARRESTED FOR ATTEMPTED MURDERYesterday, the Judiciary Police (PJ) arrested two young people, aged 18 and 23, due to strong evidence of the crime of attempted homicide with a knife, in Faro on Tuesday.

“The victim, a 44-year-old man, was seriously attacked, using a sharp weapon, and was assisted at the time by emergency services and subsequently taken to the Centro Hospitalar Universitário do Algarve”, say the PJ in a statement.

“The reason for the aggression was that the victim, the owner of a commercial establishment, refused to serve one of the attackers a drink after closing time”, say the police.

One of the suspected men was tracked down by the Republican National Guard 24 hours after the attack, and was arrested after the GNR found evidence.

After further investigation, the other attacker was also arrested. The pair are related.

The young people were brought before the judicial authority, and are in preventive detention.
