A 27-year-old German woman has been arrested in connection with the death of a 60-year-old homeless man in the Parc de ses Estacions in Palma in the early hours of yesterday morning.

According to police sources, both slept on the streets of Palma and an argument broke out between the two over a bench in the park behind the train station.

According to the police, during the discussion, which apparently developed into a fight, the 60-year-old, identified as Miguel S.J., fell and suffered a severe blow to the head.

Police sources have also stated that the young German woman allegedly continued to kick and punch the victim while he was down.

The German has been arrested by the National Police and is being held in custody in the secure wing of Son Espases Hospital, where she was treated for minor injuries, as the prime suspect.
