A dispute between neighbours is the origin of the attack with flammable liquid on three men in Vallecas

Previous disputes between neighbours could be the origin of the attack with flammable liquid that took place on Saturday night in the Entrevías area (Puente de Vallecas). The National Police have taken the reins of the investigation and believe that, Contrary to what the three victims initially stated, they did know their attacker.

He was described as “black, probably Dominican, also dressed all in black.” It happened at 9:30 p.m. on a bench on Calle Carlos Auriole, 32. Two Ecuadorians and a Spaniard were drinking beer when the individual threw the substance at them and set them on fire with a lighter. They have told of a miracle.

After receiving notification from the emergency services, the Samur-Civil Protection paramedics treated the injured, aged between 45 and 50, for burns. The most serious patient had second-degree burns on just over 20% of his body (armpit, back and left forearm), and was transferred in serious condition with advance notice to the Burn Unit of the La Paz hospital.

The other two were slightly injured. One had second-degree burns on 4% of his body surface (right arm) and the other on his eye, which he could lose. They were taken to the Gregorio Marañón Hospital in the capital, a spokeswoman for Emergencias Madrid told Europa Press.

The police arrived at the scene and are now looking for the attacker. At first, the victims claimed that they did not know him, but that they had seen him before at the station. The officers confirmed that the three Ecuadorians had a history of threats and attackers, and they ended up confessing that they knew the attacker, with whom they had certain disputes, so it was probably revenge.
