Police were called to the scene of what is being reported as an attempted murder in Cala De Bou during the afternoon of Saturday 13th June.

The incident took place on the junction of Carrer des Calo (the lower bay road) and Carrer Lugo (known to many as the home of Kumharas) and it is understood that a man in a silver hatchback attempted to kill a man on foot by attempting to run him down. The ferocity of the attempt can be seen in the 3rd picture by the damage to another car in one of the ramming attempts.

Ultimately the silver hatchback was abandoned by the attacker as it became embedded in the trampolines of the Bull bar. The driver fled the scene on foot.

The target for the attack was rushed to hospital with what was described by onlookers as seriously crushed legs.

Police cordoned off the scene on an afternoon when many bars in the area were busy with tourists watching the Ireland v Scotland European qualifier on television.

Our photographs were supplied by a local resident who we shall not name due to uncertainty regarding whether the absconding attacker has yet been apprehended.
