TWO bouncers knifed in Benidorm were attacked in a popular hotspot for British tourists.
But when did it happen and is it safe to travel to the popular resort?
When did it happen?
The doormen, one from Romania and the other from the Czech Republic, were stabbed by “two Brits” in the early hours of Sunday night.
It is believed they were working at the Beachcomber bar on Calle Majorca in the Spanish resort’s Little England area.
The source said: “One of the Brits was arrested on suspicion of attempted homicide and wounding and the other for an offence of making threats.
“One of the casualties, the most seriously injured of the two, was stabbed in the abdomen and was admitted to intensive care. The other was stabbed in the chest.”
A police spokesman said: “Two men have been arrested over a stabbing incident in Benidorm last night around 10.30pm. They are both British and aged 20 and 21.
“Two people, workers at the place where the incident happened, suffered what appeared to be stab wounds.”
A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson confirmed to the Sun Online: “Our staff are in contact with the Spanish authorities following the arrest of two British men in Benidorm.”
Is the area safe?
Benidorm nightspots are banned from dishing out free booze after a spate of violence last summer in the Little England area.
One Brit was left in a coma and another suffered a gunshot wound.
Council chiefs have promised a police crackdown to keep British tourists safe and protect the image of the popular Costa Blanca resort which has been tarnished by violence.
Security chief Lorenzo Martinez confirmed pubs and clubs in the Little England area are no longer allowed to offers of free drinks to lure punters inside.
