POLICE have arrested as 19-year-old girl for allegedly killing another teenager.
The suspect, who has not yet been named, is accused of stabbing a 17-year-old girl named Denise in the stomach on Sunday in Alcorcon, Madrid.
Denise’s mother has since spoken of her heartbreak and said before her death her daughter had complained of receiving threatening Whatsapp messages from her ex-boyfriend’s new girlfriend.
Denise’s father added he had last spoken to her on Saturday when she had assured him she, “had it under control,” and the girl had, “stopped threatening her.”
The victim’s father added he believed the girl threatening his daughter may have been responsible for the stabbing, although police have not confirmed whether the girl they have arrested is the same person.
Denise’s father told one publication his daughter had claimed she was not concerned about the threats, saying the girl, “is buzzing, she is crazy, they are just words.”
He added, “when she told me that she was being threatened, I asked her if she wanted me to talk to the girl or the girl’s father, who she told me works in the Guardia Civil, so I think they are good people.” He said his daughter asked not to do anything.
Police say Denise was stabbed on Sunday night and was found by emergency services at around 10pm, lying bloodied on the ground on the junction of Calle de Desmonte and Calle Cuenca in Alcorcon, a suburb in southwest Madrid.
The victim was said to have been stabbed in the stomach and was in cardiac arrest.
Health workers carried out CPR and stabilised Denise before taking her to hospital where she died early on Monday morning.
