A 17-year-old teen has apparently punched Spanish prime minister, Mariano Rajoy hard in the face after at a campaign appearance in the northern city where the politician grew up on Wednesday, December 16.
The unidentified attacker was standing next to Mr Rajoy on a street in the city of Pontevedra in the Galicia region while he talked to a crowd, then pulled his arm back and delivered a left hook to Mr Rajoy’s left cheek.
Watch the video of the attack:
Video on Spanish TV showed Mr Rajoy falling towards the ground from the impact but being propped up by others around him. He suffered bruises to his face as his glasses were knocked to the ground and crushed.
Mr Rajoy later appeared, smiling but without his glasses, at a campaign appearance in the nearby city of A Coruna. Spanish media reported that Mr Rajoy’s attacker was 17. Video showed him being detained by security guards and then taken in handcuffs from a building, raising his hands and thumbs into the air in an apparent victory sign.
