A minor under the age of 16 was stabbed this Monday in the Rutilio Gaci square, in the Arganzuela district of Madrid.
The Samur toilets have treated the victim, who had injuries to the head and one hand.
After stabilizing him, they have transferred him in serious condition to October 12.
The police investigate what happened with all the open hypotheses, although the one that has the most force is that it is a settling of scores between youth gangs, due to the weapons used and the age of the victim.
In fact, it is the Provincial Information Brigade, which has three groups dedicated to investigating these violent groups, which has taken on the investigation.
According to a waitress from a nearby bar, around eight in the evening there was a commotion in the square near the Madrid Río park and a boy ended up lying on the ground bleeding.
"We have seen machetes," says the hotelier.
In the place where the aggression took place there is a children's playground that is normally very crowded and several terraces.
Just one year ago the tragic weekend of clashes between gangs in Madrid, in which two alleged members of the Trinitarians were assassinated.
Pepe, 15, was stabbed in Atocha, and Diego, 25, was stabbed to death in a park in Usera.
Arganzuela is one of the districts included in the anti-gang plan that has been underway in Madrid since November 2021, but which was reinforced precisely after that weekend.
According to the latest data from the Government Delegation, there are currently 800 gang members in the Community of Madrid.
