On the night of March 11, a police patrol wanted to check up on a man in Bratislava’s Petržalka suburb, but he tried to escape. Police managed to chase him down on foot after 150 metres, but the man kicked one officer and tried to stab him in the chest with the manicure scissors.

The officer kicked the scissors from his attacker’s hand, but then the man bit him on the finger.

The man was taken to the police station, where police discovered he was in possession of four doses of an unknown substance and two syringes. The 51-year-old Bratislava man was charged with attacking a public servant.
