A 23-year-old man died on Saturday night on the Costa del Sol after being stabbed to death with what police believe could have been either a knife or a broken bottle.

The incident happened minutes before midnight in Calle Veracruz, near the París 15 nightclub in Malaga city, where a concert was being held. Police found a knife on Sunday 2 June, which is now being analysed to establish if it is the murder weapon.

The sharp object had the hilt covered with black tape and was found in the same street where the incident occurred under a hedge in a car parking bay. SUR can confirm the knife was discovered by Malaga city council cleaning services who were working in the San Luis industrial estate.

Barely two hours after the first attack, a second stabbing took place at 1.20am on Sunday 2 June in the El Palo neighbourhood. A member of the public alerted emergency services who found the man in the Plaza Padre Ciganda.

According to sources, the victim - a 40-year-old foreign man who was drunk - had a stab wound to the abdomen. He was rushed to a hospital in Malaga city.
