THE Almeria Provincial Court sentenced a man accused of stabbing someone in the back to five years in prison.
The case dates back to May 2016, when the victim was loading suitcases into the back of their car in a Vera street. The aggressor, identified as E.A.C.A., approached the man and stabbed him twice in the upper part of his back and neck area with a knife with an 8cm-long blade. He was prevented from inflicting further wounds by others who went to the victim’s assistance.
Fortunately the knife wounds did not touch any vital organs, but did require stiches, and the victim needed 10 days to recover from the attack.
The court also ruled the aggressor has to pay €4,470 in compensation.
