Ventimiglia. There would be an episode of harassment of a couple, inside a supermarket, at the basis of the violent beating that took place in the afternoon on the corner of via Roma and via Ruffini, in the center of Ventimiglia. The young African migrant attacked by three men with a bar, could therefore have been the victim of a punitive expedition.
This is, at the moment, the reconstruction of the episode of violence that shook the border town. It is not excluded that the attackers are Italian, but the aggression would not be attributable to a racial matrix. The investigations are conducted by the police: the police commissioner of Imperia, Pietro Milone, also intervened on the spot.
Apparently, the alcohol-altered stranger would have annoyed the couple who were shopping. It seemed that everything had ended there, however, once he left the supermarket he was chased by three men, who beat him and then kicked and punched him, leaving him on the ground.
The young man reported facial trauma and other injuries: in the hospital, doctors are evaluating his condition.
