Agents of the National Police have arrested a 20-year-old as the alleged perpetrator of a crime of injury committed on May 6 at Galcerán street in the capital of Tenerife.
The events occurred after 6:00 p.m. A young man walking down the street tripped over a teenager. The boy told the twentysomething to be more careful.
Apparently, immediately afterwards, he kicked the teenager at the height of the head that made him fall to the ground, then fleeing to the center of the city.
The agents of the National Police, once at the scene, interviewed the witnesses and requested urgent medical assistance for the victim, who had a bloody face.
Once he had received such assistance, the national police were able to learn that the minor had a fracture of the nasal septum and loss of teeth, as a result of the brutal aggression.
To locate the aggressor, they combed the surroundings and, moments later, they located a young man at the Plaza de la Paz tram stop who fully matched the physical characteristics and clothing of the alleged criminal.
He was arrested and taken to the police station to later be brought before the competent judicial authority.
The actions were carried out by national police officers from the Citizen Security Brigade of the Provincial Police Station of the National Police of Santa Cruz de Tenerife.
