Moravia, May 12 (BD) – The incident took place on Sunday evening on the route between the Pražská and Na Šibeníku stops in Olomouc, but was not reported in Czech media until Tuesday. 

“The 28-year-old, who was not wearing the correct respiratory protection, was advised by a 46-year-old fellow passenger. This infuriated him and he attacked the man, with several punches to the face,” said police spokesman František Kořínek. A 52-year-old woman came to the defence of the victim, and the attacker punched her once.

On arrival, police officers carried out a breathalyzer test on the man. With a value of 2.3 ‘pro mile’ of alcohol, he was arrested on the spot.

The attacker may face up to two years in prison for disorderly conduct, according to Kořínek.
