Rabat – A 25-year old Moroccan man was stabbed to death after a fight in the El Gerco de Reus neighborhood in Tarragona, Spain.
Spanish news outlet El Caso reported that the incident took place on Sunday afternoon. The perpetrator has been arrested.
The suspect, according to the Spanish news outlet, is a 27-year old Guinean national. He fled the site of the incident after stabbing his victim.
Police sources told the Spanish news outlet that the stabbing “could be the consequence of a fight that took place days ago,” suggesting that the stabbing was a “revenge.”
