Prešov man raises hell over lack of fruit-flavoured ice cream

A 66-YEAR-OLD man from Prešov faces charges of robbery after attacking a pair of young ice cream vendors.

A 66-YEAR-OLD man from Prešov faces charges of robbery after attacking a pair of young ice cream vendors.

“The defendant approached an ice cream stall and engaged the 22-year-old seller in a conversation about ice cream, showing interest in a fruit flavour,” Prešov Regional Police spokesman Daniel Džobanik told the TASR newswire on June 13. “When the seller told him that the stall didn’t have fruit-flavoured ice cream, the man started using profanities against both her and her 19-year-old female colleague, threating to kill both women.”

Outside, the aggressive customer grabbed the young female seller by the hand and shoved her. When she protested, the man reiterated his threats, even threatening her with rape. Attempting to wedge himself into the stall, he grabbed the woman’s handbag and tried to yank from her, while punching her in the arm.

The young woman managed to reach into her purse for her mobile phone and called the police. A female passer-by noticed the scuffle and helped the seller get her handbag back by yanking it away from the man. Subsequently, both sellers locked themselves inside the stall.

The man leisurely sat down in front of the adjacent stall and yelled threats at both women. He stayed there until the police arrived and took him into custody.
