“Details of the incident are still under investigation,” Vrbická said. The police have registered three criminal complaints, filed by the assaulted as well as the alleged attackers.

In the early hours of Saturday, April 6, the three men were attacked in front of Pražovňa, a dance club in the town. The Czech national was beaten up so severely that he fell unconscious twice, while his girlfriend wound up with a broken nose. One of the Georgians is due to undergo a CT examination to determine the extent of his head injuries.
