A British man was arrested in Spain for the murder of an Irish tourist in a pub on the Costa del Sol in the early hours of this morning.
Detectives say the victim was killed after being torn with a broken bottle in human toilets in an unnamed Irish pub in the Fuengiriola resort.
The incident has been described as a surprise attack that occurred after the British man started bullying several women in the pub, including the partner of the man who was killed.
The suspected murderer is 49 and the dead man is 53, according to the police.
After the attack, the alleged murderer allegedly tried to flee the scene, but was stopped by the bar staff.
A spokesperson for the Spanish national police confirmed that the two men did not know each other and that the suspect had shown interest in different women in the pub, including the victim's partner.
He said: & # 39; National police officers arrested a 49-year-old British man in the early morning hours this morning in suspected involvement in the death of an Irishman at the age of 53 in a cafe in town.
& # 39; The victim got cuts in his neck and other parts of his body with a broken beer bottle.
& # 39; The incident occurred around 1.50 am in the toilets of the Irish pub. The police have determined from investigations that the victim and the attacker did not know each other.
& # 39; According to initial investigations, the suspect was interested in several women in the pub, including the victim's partner.
& # 39; At one point, the man who was killed spoke with the suspect. The victim was reportedly surprised by the human toilets.
& # 39; The arrested man, who reportedly had two broken bottles in each hand, is suspected of inflicting multiple wounds on his victim, including some on the neck.
He tried to flee the scene afterwards, but was stopped by security personnel and subsequently arrested by police in the area.
& # 39; Medical workers could not do anything to save the victim who died on the spot.
& # 39; The British man has been arrested on suspicion of murder and is currently being held at Fuengirola police station. & # 39;
