TWO people have been stabbed to death in the neighbouring towns of Torremolinos and Benalmádena in less than a week.
On Tuesday morning of this week a 74-year-old retired National Police chief inspector was attacked and stabbed at least 14 times outside his home in Calle Boscán in Torremolinos. Authorities were alerted by a call to the 112 emergency line at 8.20am but the victim was already dead when the ambulance arrived.
Just four days earlier, shortly after noon on Friday of last week, a 35-year-old Romanian man was arrested in Benalmádena for allegedly stabbing his brother-in-law to death at a home in Calle Zodiaco in Arroyo de la Miel. He is understood to have been staying at the home of his sister’s family when an argument with his brother-in-law turned violent.
