A 24-YEAR-OLD man has been arrested in Berja after allegedly stabbing someone after they tied their donkey to a grate covering one of his windows.

According to reports, an investigation into an incident occurred earlier this month after officers received a call from someone claiming that they had been stabbed in the leg.

The victim is believed to have been meeting several friends along with his donkey on Calle Vigitana in the town and tied the animal to the window grille of the man’s house while drinking with friends.

Soon after, the tenant of the house reportedly left his home and approached the victim with a  knife and began to attack him, causing a wound to his leg.

Officers arrived on the scene quickly after receiving the call and found several people, including the victim, in a heated discussion with a man who was shouting from inside his house

After interviewing witnesses and clarifying what happened, officers then attempted to get to the man inside the house, before a relative informed them that the man had fled the property.

Following several further inquiries, police were eventually able to locate the 24-year-old and arrest him on suspicion of assault.
