A BRITISH man has been arrested on suspicion of stabbing his girlfriend’s “lover” after discovering them at his home in Majorca.
The 28-year-old allegedly went berserk after catching the couple unawares in the early hours of this morning on the popular Spanish island.
Police sources said that the suspect knifed his partner’s alleged lover in the ribs during a struggle.
The injured man, a 32-year-old Moroccan national, was rushed to Son Espases Hospital near the Majorcan capital Palma in a “serious condition.”
Spanish cops swarmed the property in Santa Ponsa – a short drive from Magaluf – which the alleged knifeman fled after the incident.
The alarm was raised around 3.45am this morning.
A spokesman for the Civil Guard in Majorca said: “I can confirm we have arrested a 28-year-old British national on suspicion of attempted homicide.
“He remains in police custody.”
Well-placed sources confirmed local reports the Moroccan man who had been stabbed was the alleged attacker’s lover.
The nationality of the British man’s partner, who is reported to have raised the alarm, has not been made public.
It was not immediately clear this afternoon if the two lovers were in bed together when the Brit walked in on them.
It comes as earlier this month, cops launched a manhunt for a British ex-con who allegedly stabbed his girlfriend during a row at a Costa del Sol beach club.
The 36-year-old is said to have knifed his partner who then fell from a moving car as they left a venue in Mijas Costa near Fuengirola.
The attacker, who fled the scene, is believed to have several convictions for violent crime in the UK.
