A man who reportedly committed a bomb attack at a Košice fast-food point in Profitašistických Bojovníkov Street has been detained, the SITA newswire reported. The bomb filled with nails exploded in a litter bin in front of the fast-food point on December 28 at 17:30 but there were no casualties.

If convicted, the alleged bomber faces a prison sentence of four to ten years and if new facts surface the crime might be re-qualified. The mental health of the suspect will also be examined.
“The Košice police caught the perpetrator, who threatened the staff of the shop and also the public, in a record short period of time,” said Interior Minister Daniel Lipšic, as quoted by the SITA newswire.

The suspect, Ladislav K., from Košice is 32 and has been detained but has not testified yet and his motive is unclear.

“The work of Košice officers was even harder, as the perpetrator was ‘a lone wolf’, working all on his own; and it is much harder to investigate such cases,” Lišpic said, as quoted by SITA.
