The injuries caused him serious bleeding. Urgently transported to the San Leonardo hospital, his condition is serious, but “the colleague is alert and not in danger of life”. The position of the four men is being examined by the police.
The man was aid from the many witnesses present at the scene while the attackers have fled. The traffic was paralyzed with consequent difficulties also to get the ambulance to the rescue site. The 118 took almost half an hour.
Law enforcement officers collected the testimonies of some present and managed to reconstruct the dynamics of the aggression. Prosecutors are trying to figure out if the brawl and subsequent actions were filmed by video surveillance cameras.
