A quarrel between two homeless people ended in blood in Rome. A 43-year-old Pole was stabbed four times by his rival, a 56-year-old Iranian who was arrested Saturday at dawn by the police on charges of attempted murder. The events took place on Friday night, a stone’s throw from the Vatican, in Piazza Papa Pio XII.
Here some passers-by saw, in a pool of blood, a dying man, thus calling for help. On the spot the agents of the state police of the Borgo police station and the Mobile team. The injured man, identified as a 43-year-old homeless man, was then urgently taken to the Santo Spirito hospital for deep wounds to the abdomen, arms and back.
Operated, he was declared out of danger of life. However, the man remains in serious condition. He will have it for 30 days. The investigators, immediately on the trail of the attacker, thanks to the video images of the square, recognized him and tracked him down at 5:30 am on Saturday, again in that area. The 56-year-old Iranian, arrested, is accused of attempted murder. The two quarreled for futile reasons.
