Criminal investigators in Prague are looking for a group of seven men, apparently foreigners, who attacked a waiter in the garden of a restaurant in Vladislavova Street on Saturday evening. The man ended up in very serious condition at the Intensive Care Unit and underwent head surgery. The culprits could face up to ten years in jail for grievous bodily harm and disturbing the peace.
On their website, the police have published photos of all the assault suspects as well as video of the attack, which took place at a small square near the Quadrio shopping centre. You can find the shots at the end of this article.
The waiter got into a conflict with the suspects after he brought to their attention that they were not permitted to consume alcohol they had brought with them into the garden [on the patio]. The group of seven men then attacked restaurant personnel and knocked one waiter down, where they beat him with fists and repeatedly kicked him. When the victim was lying on the ground unconscious, they fled from there onto tram number 14 and rode away in the direction of the Charles Square, the police spokesman recounted.
Based on their investigation so far, the investigators surmise that the suspects are foreigners, who may be staying in a hotel, hostel or some other type of accommodation in Prague or in the region. “This is why we are primarily asking hotel service staff and all other witnesses if they saw these men, or if they know where they are staying, to call Emergency Line 158,” said the spokesman.
