The injured men, one aged 20, were found lying near the beach on Calle Martin Ros García.

The most seriously wounded victim was stabbed in the chest and abdomen and found unconscious being being rushed to San Espases hospital.

One eyewitness who rushed to the scene said one of the victims ‘was in a bad way’.

“I ran onto the beach to try and catch the person who was stabbing people,” bar worker Sean Burnfield told the Olive Press.

“The Guardia got one of one of the friends, but somehow the others got away.

“They will find them if there are cameras in Boomerang.”

A Guardia Civil spokesperson confirmed to the Olive Press that one victim remained in hospital.

Police believe the main suspect they are now hunting is a tourist.
