A young man was arrested last night after he attacked a tourist outside the Cabin Hotel on Borgartún in Reykjavík, reports DV.

The man, who was found in possession of drugs, violently resisted his arrest and spent the night in jail. The tourist in question was sent to hospital and intends to file charges against the young man.

It was a busy night for police who also stopped two drivers in Austurbær. One was under the influence of alcohol and the other under the influence of drugs.

Meanwhile in Vesturbær two other drivers were stopped, both under the influence of drugs.
