Argument started in an apartment, spilled over into the street

An argument between three men in a St Paul’s Bay apartment yesterday, spilled over into the street and led to a woman and three men being hurt.

The police were informed, at around 12:30pm on Saturday, that their assistance was needed in Triq Censu Tanti, St Paul’s Bay.

On arriving at the scene, they found a 35-year-old Romanian woman from St Paul’s Bay lying on the ground in the street.

Preliminary investigations indicate that the fight which had started in nearby apartment had continued in the street in the location where the woman was found.
