Yesterday Palma police arrested a man who repeatedly stabbed Maria Soledad Roca Fernandez at her home in Calle Aragon. According to the victim's neighbour, just before mid-day she heard screams for help coming from Roca's house. “She's a very quiet and discreet woman who's never had any problems. I dialled 091 to report the screams, which continued while I was on the phone,” she said. When the police arrived the attacker had fled the scene and left Maria lying in a pool of blood.
