Christmas murder at Charlie’s Pub

A 25-year-old Slovak, Martin R., was murdered shortly before midnight December 25 in Charlie’s Pub, a popular Bratislava dance club. Witnesses said a fight broke out for unknown reasons between a group of five men and another pair. One of the pair of combatants was stabbed four times in the stomach and chest with what one witness called “a huge hunting knife”. He died on the way to hospital; his attackers fled. Police detained club patrons until three a.m. while investigating clues. One officer told a reporter from the daily paper Sme: “Only masochists come to Bratislava to have fun any more.”
