The investigating judge number 46 of Madrid, in function of the detainee guard, has ordered the entry into provisional prison, communicated and without bail, of the 19-year-old young man arrested for assaulting a health worker in the Madrid Metro.
The detainee has spent this morning at the disposal of the examining magistrate number 46 of Madrid. After giving a statement, the prosecutor has requested that he enter prison for a crime of serious injuries but the final qualification will be at the expense of the victim losing the vision of one eye.
He will be investigated for the alleged commission of a crime of aggravated injuries and, in addition, the Court will take a statement from the person involved and five witnesses to the events on September 8, as reported by the Superior Court of Justice of Madrid (TSJM).
The 19-year-old was arrested last Monday as an alleged aggressor of the nurse who was attacked last Thursday in a Madrid Metro wagon after asking him to put on the mask.
The arrest took place in a home in the Madrid neighborhood of Villaverde when the young man went home to collect personal belongings with the probable objective, according to the National Police, of hiding elsewhere.
To try to evade his arrest, the alleged assailant had changed his hair color and even hid his ear rings to avoid being recognized, the Superior Police Headquarters has indicated in a statement.
The events took place last Thursday night at the Alto del Arenal station on Line 1 of the Madrid Metro when the nurse at the Hospital 12 de Octubre reproached a passenger for not wearing a mask, which is mandatory on public transport.
At one point, the young man attacked the toilet with a sharp object and hit him hard in the face. The victim was treated at the 12 de Octubre Hospital and, as a result of the impact on the eye, the victim has lost part of the vision in one eye.
After the events, the alleged perpetrator of the coup left the wagon after snapping at the nurse: ‘I hope you die, asshole’, according to the video of the events that has been disseminated on social networks.
The agents of the Mobile Brigade of the Higher Police Headquarters of Madrid who took charge of the investigation managed to identify the aggressor a few days after the events, which were videotaped by the witnesses and widely disseminated through social networks.
Thus, after various police devices to locate him, the National Police agents have managed to arrest the young man this Monday, accused of a crime of serious injuries.
