A young French tourist was stabbed on 4 February in a hamburger shop in Lisbon and, despite their life not being in danger, had to be assisted at São José Hospital, a police source told Lusa.

According to the official of the service to the Metropolitan Command of Lisbon of the PSP (Cometlis), the aggression occurred around 6pm, in the McDonald’s restaurant in Rua Rodrigo da Fonseca, in Lisbon, when the victim was in line for the cash register.

According to eye testimonies reported to the PSP, the 21-year-old woman was in line to acquire food when a man, who claimed to be unaware, stabbed her in the back, causing her a shallow but extensive wound with close to 30 centimetres. The suspect went on the run, with the authorities looking for him.

The young woman described the attacker as a tall man, about six feet tall, dressed in denim and with short hair.

The police are now investigating the incident, collecting testimonies and will consult the video surveillance images of the establishment to try to identify and later locate the attacker, admitting that he may suffer from psychological problems, as there seems to be no reason for the act.
