A German tourist has been admitted since Friday night at the Hospital del Mar after his leg was broken during a new violent robbery in the center of Barcelona . Three other people who were with him at the time of the assault were also beaten, police sources confirm. The Mossos d'Esquadra continue investigating what happened and are waiting for the injured to file a complaint once he is discharged. At the moment there are no arrests while trying to identify those responsible.
The beating occurred on Andrea Dòria street, in the Barceloneta neighborhood. Shortly before midnight, the four tourists were approached by six young people who tried to rob them. After resisting, they could do nothing when they appeared even more assailants. According to police sources, tourists received punches and kicks and blows with extendable batons . Before disappearing, the thieves took away several victims' mobiles, a high-end watch and a gold chain.
Of the four victims, the worst unemployed was a young man who had to be transferred to Hospital del Mar with one of his legs broken, as confirmed by the Servei d'Ermergències Mèdiques (SEM).
The assault adds to the list of serious incidents that the city accumulates this summer and that has made the City Council itself admit the existence of a security crisis. A perception that they now try to reduce but that is justified by the accumulation of events.
