Arrest made over Patra migrant attack

Police in the western port city of Patra on Tuesday arrested a 31-year-old man in connection to a brutal attack on an undocumented migrant on Sunday night that left the victim in a coma after he suffered extensive head injuries.

The 31-year-old is suspected of having assaulted — together with another two men who are being sought by authorities — the Tunisian migrant, who has not been named.

They beat him viciously using their fists and feet, until a crowd from a nearby theater chased them off and called an ambulance to the scene.

Witnesses had identified one of the three assailants as belonging to the far-right Golden Dawn group.
