An American tourist was injured Wednesday after being brutally attacked by African illegal street vendors in the Plaza de Catalunya, in Barcelona. According to police sources, the tourist defended a woman who was being harassed by the Africans.
The Emergency Medical System attended the tourist in the place and moved it in a less serious condition to the Hospital Clínic, from where it has already been discharged as indicated by the Catalan police. The spokesman of then Guàrdia Urbana, explained the tourist defended a woman who was being rebuked by the handlers after she recriminated that she could not go with a baby cart through the bazaar that was placed on the floor. One of the migrants struck the tourist “with the buckle of a belt as a whip” and “cut off the femoral artery”, which caused him “a deep wound and arterial bleeding of unknown prognosis”.
The Barcelona City Council confirmed on Thursday that there was a fight between an American tourist, who was transferred to an hospital, and African illegal street vendors. The police are investigating the case.
