Virgen de la Victoria University Hospital where Pablo P was taken

TWO men have been arrested over the death of a young man after a bar fight in Malaga.

The 22-year-old, known as Pablo P, was celebrating his birthday when he saw a fight outside a bar in Malaga City and allegedly attempted to break it up, when he was knocked unconscious and beaten whilst on the ground.

He was resuscitated at the scene by paramedics, but was declared brain dead and was later allowed to die in hospital.

The two suspects were identified on Sunday (April 23), and CCTV footage helped police arrest a 25-year-old suspect on Monday.

By 12.30am on Tuesday, the second suspect, a 27-year-old Spaniard, handed himself in to authorities.

Two other people were also arrested for perverting the course of justice but were later released on charges.

The victim’s father said his son “could not stand watching others be abused,” and that this was the most likely reason he tried to stop the fight.

“He did not know how to fight, he didn’t drink or smoke. He was a healthy, sensible young man” he added.
