Woman accused of “glassing” friend 

A Dutch woman has been ordered to stand trial in Tenerife in October for allegedly glassing a friend during a row.

She is charged with the alleged crime of causing injury with a dangerous instrument.

The Prosecutor’s Office is asking for a prison sentence of four and a half years and the payment of about 15,000 euros as compensation. However, it has indicated it would reduce the sentence and raise the amount of compensation, taking into account the number of days of holiday the victim was unable to enjoy because of her injuries.

The alleged assault took place at dawn on September 13th, 2015, near a pub in Playa de las Americas when both women were on holiday.

The accused is sid to have hit her friend’s cheek with a glass, causing various injuries, a broken tooth and post-traumatic disorder, as well as leaving her with a scar.
