A Syrian, 21, threw pepper spray during an argument with relatives in Vienna-Donastadt on Monday evening, injuring six people. During the arrest on Gross-Enzersdorfer-Straße, the young man fought violently, hitting and kicking the officers. During the official crackdown, Syrians threatened to kill relatives and police officers present. It is not clear what the dispute was about.
No entry or approach restrictions were issued against the attacker. He is in police custody. The investigation is being conducted on suspicion of resistance to state authority, multiple bodily harm and dangerous threats. It is certain that the man had argued with him several times before and, according to the police, he is a distant relative.
