Mexico City, Mexico — A British man has been arrested for the attempted murder of his girlfriend. His arrest took place Tuesday afternoon in Cuernavaca, Morelos. State and federal police participated in the capture of Morris “N” who had an outstanding arrest warrant.

Police were unable to located Morris “N” until Tuesday, when he was arrested in the city of Cuernavaca in the state of Morelos.
According to a statement by the Fiscalía de Morelos, the incident happened “in recent days when the man argued with the female victim inside a home located in the Extremadura Insurgentes neighborhood of Benito Juárez (Mexico City) and presumably physically assaulted her.”
