A 45-year-old St Paul's Bay resident was found covered in blood by police in San Gwann on Thursday at 1:30am.

The man, police said, was involved in an argument with a 34-year-old Libyan man who had escaped the scene of the crime after allegedly injuring the victim with a pointed object.

The victim was found on Triq San Mikiel. He was given medical attention on-site and then transported to Mater Dei hospital for treatment.

He is currently suffering from grievous injuries.

After a preliminary search by police to find the assailant, the Libyan man eventually gave himself up to police.

Investigations continue.
