Beaten on a beach in Łeba, he was taken to hospital
– One of the attackers sprinkled sand in his eyes, then they both started kicking him and hitting him all over his body with clubs. The men were dragged away from the 56-year-old by lifeguards. The policemen called to the scene determined the circumstances of the incident, secured the truncheons, which were most likely used by the perpetrators, and arrested the 20-year-old and 19-year-old from the Słupsk and Chojnice poviats – said the aspirant Szałkowska.
As she added, the victim was taken to hospital. His life and health are not in danger.
The event from Łeba recorded by monitoring
Investigators secured a monitoring recording showing the course of the event. Evidence was collected that allowed the accusation of being beaten with the use of a dangerous tool to be presented to the detained. The prosecutor decided to apply preventive measures against them in the form of police supervision and a ban on leaving the country, combined with a ban on issuing a document authorizing them to cross the border.
Men are threatened with 8 years imprisonment.
