17 year old youth who broke into a flat in Pondedueme, A Coruña, died in the early hours of Sunday after being surprised and stabbed by the owner of the property. The owners of the flat arrived home while the thief was inside.
The owner of the flat stabbed the youth with the knife, and then the youth jumped out of the window to make his escape. He died some streets away after collapsing.
The owner has been arrested by the Guardia Civil and remains in custody.
The Mayor of Pondedueme, Gabriel Torrente, lamented what had happened. He told Europa Press that ‘years ago these things did not happen’.
