Two people, including the seriously-injured victim, have been arrested by the National Police after a man was stabbed with the neck of broken bottle during a party in Marbella.

The incident happened in the early hours of last Sunday when, at around 4.05 am, several people alerted the 112 Emergency Services that a man had been stabbed at a villa in Calle Pizarra, in the Nagüeles area.

The victim was transferred in critical condition to the Costa del Sol Hospital and he was then transferred to Malaga for urgent surgery. His life is now out of danger and he is being guarded by police officers.

Initial National Police investigations suggest a fight broke out at the party and as a result a 26-year-old Swedish man has been arrested and charged with attempted murder.

However, police have also arrested the man in hospital who is accused of stabbing his attacker, causing an injury to his arm that needed stitches.

Initially the police believed the seriously injured person in hospital was a 35-year-old British man, but it turned out he, too, is Swedish.
