Pensioner bites priest for alleged seduction

A pensioner from Pohronská Polhora in Brezno district attacked the village priest and threatened to kill him while also taking a bite from the parson’s calf. The purported reason is that the pensioner suspected the priest of having a romantic affair with his wife. The spokesperson of the Banská Bystrica Regional Police, Mária Faltániová, told the SITA newswire that the man, age 74, has been accused of making dangerous threats.

The spokesperson of the Banská Bystrica Regional Police, Mária Faltániová, told the SITA newswire that the man, age 74, has been accused of making dangerous threats.

Apparently the pensioner fell to the ground during the confrontation with the priest and then bit his left calf and threatened to kill him. The priest is now so scared that he keeps the gate of the local parsonage locked even during the day. The altercation between the men resulted in injuries to both that required medical treatment. The accused is not in custody but will be prosecuted, SITA wrote, and he could face one year behind bars.
