The police detained a 33-year-old who was supposed to use a gun to threaten the driver in Strzelce Krajeńskie (Lubuskie Province). – The course of the event resembled scenes from an action movie. A correctly driving driver was blocked on one of the streets in Strzelce Krajeńskie. The man who did it took out a weapon-like object, reloaded it and aimed it at it, says Tomasz Bartos from the rifle police.
On Monday, November 8, one of the drivers driving along Wojska Polskiego Street in Strzelce Krajeńskie waited for the green light at the narrowing of the street due to the renovation. After the green light came on, the driver started driving correctly towards Gorzów Wielkopolski. After a while he had to stop because he was prevented from driving by the seat driver coming from the opposite side.
– When they both blocked each other’s passage, the man from the seat got out of the car, took out an object resembling a weapon, reloaded it and aimed it in the direction of a correctly driving driver – reports Tomasz Bartos, press officer of the District Police Headquarters in Strzelce Krajeńskie.
He was hiding from the police
The driver, who was threatened with a gun by the man, had a camera installed in the car that recorded the entire event.
The recording shows how, at the sight of a weapon pointed at him, he retreats and bypasses the attacker’s car. – The man who was threatened with a weapon-like object informed the policemen from Strzelce Krajeńskie about the almost bandit behavior of the seat driver. Thanks to the recording from the camera mounted in the victim’s car, the police quickly found out who was responsible for the incident – reports Bartos.
The case was dealt with by officers from the Criminal Department of the County Police Headquarters in Strzelce Krajeńskie. They determined that the reason is a 33-year-old. “He left his home and tried to hide,” explains Bartos.
As it turned out, the man was hiding in the West Pomeranian Voivodeship. The policemen determined his whereabouts and detained him from Tuesday to Wednesday night.
– During the activities with his participation, the detainee insulted the policemen and threatened them. He heard a total of five charges. He will be responsible for directing threats with the use of a weapon-like object at the driver and insulting and threatening the police, Bartos informs.
He was arrested
The court granted the prosecutor’s request and arrested the 33-year-old. Now he is facing up to three years in prison. In addition, he will also be responsible for breaking road regulations.
The police also detained the 53-year-old who was helping the 33-year-old. “He tried to hide the gun, helping to cover his tracks,” explains Bartos.
