Knifeman wanted after stabbing two Brits in Tenerife

A manhunt is under way as police search for a knifeman who stabbed two Brits on the holiday island of Tenerife.

The man, who fled the scene in a red Audi, reportedly stabbed a 45-year-old man and a 32-year-old man in the Los Cristiano’s resort.

The 45-year-old victim is said to be in a “very serious” condition, after reportedly being stabbed eight times, while the 32-year-old man from Birmingham, is said to have less serious injuries.

The names of the victims, who are both currently being treated at the same hospital, have not yet been released, however the initials of the older victim are said to be P.F, and the initials for the younger victim J.T.

Although the Spanish police are yet to make any arrests, it is said that they have identified the suspect. The knifeman is said to be a 41-year-old British National, yet it is unknown where in the UK he is from, fled the crime scene in a car with Russian number plates.

Police are not yet sure what may have instigated the stabbings, however, The Sun have reported that it may have been in connection with ‘a settling of scores.’

All ports on the popular tourist island have been informed in order to prevent the suspect from fleeing.
