Brno, Mar 1 (BD) – On Thursday night, Brno Police intervened when a drunk 24-year-old woman allegedly put her partner on the ground and punched him in the face. Attempts to calm the woman down had the opposite effect, as the woman started threatening passers-by and tried to attack the police officers. The police then shifted to coercive measures and handcuffed the woman, which she did not take well. According to Jakub Ghanem, “the woman began to shout at the officers that she was a witch, and threatened to curse them.” She also claimed knowledge of medieval practices and torture, which featured in her threats.

The woman is now being held under suspicion of disobeying a police officer and disrespecting an official, as well as a misdemeanor charge for disruptive behaviour. Her partner has not filed a complaint for his injuries.
