Police are searching for a 31-year-old Serbian national who they believe murdered a 27-year-old Albanian at the Three Towers complex in Bratislava last week, Police Corps vice-president Ľubomír Ábel and Bratislava Regional Police director Csaba Faragó said at a press conference on Tuesday, August 16.

Police are searching for a 31-year-old Serbian national who they believe murdered a 27-year-old Albanian at the Three Towers complex in Bratislava last week, Police Corps vice-president Ľubomír Ábel and Bratislava Regional Police director Csaba Faragó said at a press conference on Tuesday, August 16.

The suspect, named as Yeton Vokrri by the Sme daily, has never been charged with a crime in Slovakia, but police say they have been monitoring him as he was thought to be involved in criminal activities. Ábel said, as quoted by the TASR newswire, that Vokrri typically knifed car tyres to divert the attention of owners and used the opportunity to steal other items.

The motive for the murder is still being investigated, but police believe that it was a settling of past scores. The killer fled the scene and is believed to have left the country before he could be identified from CCTV footage and by witnesses. The murdered Albanian had permanent residence in the Czech Republic, while the suspect is a permanent resident of Hungary.
