Briton ‘identified by police for beating wife in front of toddler son’ while on holiday in Albufeira

According to newspaper Correio da Manhã, the incident happened during the early hours of Sunday morning.
The man is suspected of having violently beaten his 25-year-old Portuguese wife in an apartment at the Balaia tourist resort, at around 2am, where they were reportedly on holiday.
According to CM, citing sources who asked for anonymity and were allegedly at the scene and who witnessed the incident, the couple was accompanied by their three-year-old son and an aunt of the victim, who had another two children with her.
The newspaper claims the victim was in the bedroom, resting with the son, “when the man arrived at the apartment, apparently drunk.
“He went to the bedroom and started annoying his wife. She told him she wanted to rest, which he did not respect, so the victim said she wanted to leave the hotel. That is when he hit her”.
Things then escalated, CM elaborates, when “the victim fled to her aunt’s room and asked for help, and both managed to push the man out of the room and close the door. Shortly after, the assailant left the apartment.
“The two women took the opportunity to pack and leave the tourist unit with the children. As they prepared to get into a taxi, the assailant re-appeared but was intercepted by the GNR, who had already been called”.
The newspaper claims the man was injured on one arm and was taken to a local health centre for treatment.
The women and children were taken to a GNR station for their safety.
The case has been handed over to the public prosecutor.
