Rome, stabs three boys in via dei Volsci: arrested

One of the young people attacked was seriously injured in the head and abdomen, the person responsible was then found near the underpass between via Giolitti and via Marsala

For no apparent reason he smashed a glass bottle on the ground a few steps away from a 35-year-old Italian man. When his friend intervened in his defense, he attacked him with a large blade, also injuring a second boy and violently attacking the 35-year-old, who was hit with a large pair of scissors several times on the head and abdomen. It happened during the night in via Volsci, in the San Lorenzo district From Rome. The Flying Police officers were on site and, while the Operations Room issued the search note for the person responsible described by the two less seriously injured people as a black boy, wearing a red sweatshirt, they helped the 35-year-old with a large amount of blood loss from his head. The man, a Somali, was then tracked down by agents of the Viminale police station near the Turbigo underpass, which connects via Marsala with via Giolitti.

His hands were stained with blood, in his backpack he had the red sweatshirt worn at the time of the attack and large scissors still stained with blood. Subjected to police custody, he faces charges of attempted murder, while he has been charged with aggravated assault. The two boys, also Italian and both 31 years old, who intervened in defense of the victim, suffered superficial wounds to their arms and legs and one was taken to Umberto I, the other to San Giovanni.
