A 25-year-old Hungarian man was stabbed to death on tram 28 in Budapest’s 8th district. The homicide case happened at Orczy square after the three-member-group started to pick a fight with the victim. According to an eyewitness, the young man wanted to defend his puppy.
As the Hungarian news portal Index reports,
the 25-year-old victim, Gábor was going home with his small dog and 24-year-old friend Márk when the three perpetrators (two men and a woman) attacked him.
“The whole situation happened within a minute, between two stops. As the three persons got on the tram, they targeted Gábor and started to poke his dog” – said the victim’s friend, Márk.
“Gábor asked them to leave him in peace, then one of them pushed him and spat on him. When I rose to protect my friend, they hit me; then one of them pulled a knife and stuck it into Gábor. I tried to help him, Gábor said he was very thirsty, cannot breathe and will die…”
Mark tried to clamp the bleeding, but he couldn’t save Gábor’s life; his best friend died in his arms.
The victim’s small dog, Pepsi got so frightened that he ran away from the scene, but has been found since then.
Gábor’s parents, who live in Ireland, are on their way to Budapest.
The police caught the offenders twenty minutes later.
Budapest Prosecutor’s Office suggested the arrest of the two suspects in homicide – a 43 and a 38-year-old man; and the criminal supervision of the third accomplice, a 29-year-old woman – who had been interrogated with the well-founded suspicion of complicity in manslaughter.
