Man seriously injured after fight

A Lithuanian man in his 30s is unconscious and being kept on a ventilator with a crack in his skull after suffering blows to his head with a bludgeon in his home on Saturday night. Six Lithuanians were arrested and questioned in relation to the case.

The incident occurred at a party at the man’s home in Reykjavík. He was attacked between 3 and 4 am. His attackers had fled when police arrived, but party guests could inform the police about their whereabouts,” Fréttabladid reports.

Police tracked down the six men and arrested them. One of them had been stabbed in the back and his arm with an unknown weapon, but his wounds were shallow and he was released from hospital shortly after receiving treatment.

Police questioned the six men yesterday and took reports from a number of witnesses. The reason for the attack is unclear and more people may have been involved.
