- Comes after Dwayne Ward, 17, was stabbed up to 19 times with a pen-knife
A British holiday maker has been hit over the head with a bottle in an attack at the same popular Turkish resort where a 17-year-old was stabbed 19 times and left for dead.
The man, named locally as Arron Saunders, was pictured without his top on and bleeding after he was attacked in the coastal town of Marmaris.
It comes just a week after Dwayne Ward, 17, was attacked with a pen-knife and slashed with a razor after a night out in the popular tourist resort.
He was then stripped naked and left for dead.
The teenager was allegedly ambushed. His attackers are said to have robbed, stripped, stabbed and slashed him and dumped his body in a local garden.
Mr Saunders, 27, believed to be from from London, was treated by paramedics and a doctor at the scene of the attack on Thursday night, the Sunday Mirror reports.
It is believed he had been drinking with his girlfriend on the Long Beach promenade when he was attacked. A bottle was reportedly smashed over his head when he left a bar.
Onlookers called for an ambulance, but it has been said that the man refused to go to hospital.
A Turkish police source said that the welfare of holiday makers was of ‘paramount importance’ to them.
They added: ‘But, unfortunately, when alcohol is involved, it often ends in disaster.’
