Last weekend was a total mess in Lake Balaton’s most popular party town, Siófok.
People have been waiting for this summer and these mask-free times for a very long time. It might be the wait or the extreme heatwave, but last weekend a significantly high number of people on their holidays went a little bit crazy and caused quite a scene.
Between Friday and Sunday, the Police of Siófok had to intervene on six occasions. The reason was not simply a nice night infused with some alcohol, but people were charged with rowdyism, moreover, with the use of a weapon.
On one occasion, 40 policemen were alerted in order to stop the anger and emotions.
Police.hu summarised on their website everything that happened during these three days.
Friday was the least problematic day; only a furious man was trying to kick in the windshield of a car, parking in front of a popular fast-food restaurant. He caused quite a scene, scaring customers with his outrageous actions.
The next day, things got a bit more heated when a traffic incident turned into a physical fight involving two men and a big knife. The same day, on the most popular street of the town, on Petőfi promenade, a man and a woman harassed another couple.
The biggest affair, however, happened already on Sunday, at dawn, once again on the same promenade. That is where the huge fight occurred, involving the help of 40 police officers to stop the fighters. The Police brought in and questioned seven people from that group.
Considering the whole of the weekend,
the Police questioned ten people as suspects, among whom five are already detained.
As index.hu points out, policemen are present with reinforced forces at this time of the year in this specific town, especially in the area of the so-called “Aranypart” (golden shore), where these incidents happened. The Police are aided in their work by the municipality, the home guard and other organisations.
When it comes to investigating a crime and identifying and capturing suspects, outdoor surveillance camera systems play particular importance, says the Police. The same surveillance system about which Daily News Hungary reported a month ago, as being quite questionable.
Police.hu posted on their YouTube page this video of the big fight, edited with a song that matches the feeling of the weekend.
