The city of Barcelona is reeling from a spate of stabbings over the past few days.
A man is in a serious condition after being stabbed in the Sant Martí area of Barcelona in the early hours of this morning (Wednesday).
It has been reported by witnesses that a fight broke out between two men before one of them brandished a knife and stabbed the other. The witnesses called the emergency services immediately who arrived on the scene to help the victim.
The victim was taken to the Hospital del Mar and is believed to be in a stable condition and police have launched a search for his attacker.
This incident is the fourth stabbing since Sunday in the city. A man lost his life on Monday after being stabbed in La Mina the previous day.
A few hours later, a male was stabbed and seriously injured in Pla de Palau and shortly afterwards there was a further stabbing in Ciutat Vella a little while after that.
