An anonymous bomb threat was called in for train stations in Bratislava, without any specifications for which station would be targeted, the police wrote on their Facebook site. The police searched all stations in the Slovak capital.
“Shortly after the bomb was announced, we managed to detain a suspect,” the police said, as quoted by the TASR newswire.
Trains were delayed beginning at 21:15. The railway department wrote on their Twitter account that trains began running again at 22:50.
The suspect, a 28-year-old from Bratislava, remains in pre-trial custody, the SITA newswire wrote on June 19.
Police are investigating the case, Bratislava police spokesperson Lucia Mihalíková told SITA. She said that a criminal prosecution for spreading scaremongering news may lead to a jail sentence of one to five years.
