The assailant then fled the scene.

When Guardia Civil and local police officers arrived, the victim had regained consciousness but refused to be treated by an ambulance crew. 

In fact, his behaviour was so aggressive after he came to that he was administered a sedative. 

He was eventually taken to hospital for treatment. 

The same sources said that the man had suffered two head injuries and was also at risk of internal bleeding.
