Another heated weekend: man shot in a bus stop another stabbed in a building
The knives and scissors found in the perpetrator's bag
The many restrictions and the unusual way of life that has been going on for more than a year now have had their effects on people and they start to lose their patience and act more aggressively. To make matters worse, the recently strange weather also seems to negatively effect people’s behaviour in general.
According to Police, for unknown reasons five people have started quarrelling about something at a bus stop on the 3rd of April at 2 pm in Budapest at Soroksári street. After minutes of loud arguing,
the quarrel turned into a fight and one of the participants produced his illegally owned gas and alarm gun and fired several shots.
Luckily no injures came from the fired shots, but one of the participants had to be taken to the hospital due to a stab wound. It turned out that it was only a minor injury. The District IX Police Department has initiated proceedings for harassment against the shooter and the investigation of the participants is currently in progress.
In Győr, another perpetrator was much crueller to his victim. The Győr Police Headquarters received a phone call that in the city centre two men got into a fight in a building’s staircase and the 48-year-old perpetrator stabbed the person living in one of the apartments of the building. This approximately happened on the 2nd of April at around half past noon.
The perpetrator was going around in the city centre’s buildings and ringing the doorbell of many apartments while offering the tenants to sharpen their knives for some money. According to the information of the police, this was bothering the residents and eventually, a 64-year-old man approached the perpetrator and asked him to leave the building.

The perpetrator refused to leave, and the two men started arguing. It got heated and the perpetrator stabbed the 64-year-old resident three times in three different locations with scissors and then fled from the scene.
A few hours later the police have received other reports of an aggressive man ringing every doorbell in another building. The authorities put the pieces together and went to the last reported scene. Luckily, the police have managed to catch the perpetrator in an apartment in one of the buildings and the 48-year-old Jenő R. will face judgement charged with aggravated assault.
Law enforcement must be strict with behavior like this. People like this shouldn’t be walking amongst us.
