The man was dressed only in short-sleeved tricks, which the suspects found suspicious, because it was only a few degrees above zero outside, “Daněk discovers other events.
Detention on the bus
The patrol only saw the man for a moment, yet she was fascinated by some of his features, and after confirming with colleagues in the store, they confirmed that he was most likely the man he was looking for. Police were watching the bus that the man boarded, and since there was a risk that he might still have a weapon with him, he needed the help of several other patrols. Together, the men in the bus were detained under the threat of aimed weapons.
“The thirty-one-year-old man confessed to the robbery, handed over the looted money to the police and showed him where he had dropped the bullet pistol and the tops he was wearing during the assault. The man is now being prosecuted for the crime of robbery, for which he faces up to ten years behind bars, “Daněk concluded.
