First, an update on a story that TB translated a few days ago about a machine gun robbery. The police have now released a video of the incident (source).
Secondly, TB and Zonka have translated two different articles about the same cultural enrichment incident that occurred yesterday in Copenhagen. Both translations are included below.
Another one of these small terrorist attacks that we read about every day. A true jackal.
In this article it is also funny to read how the journalist actually specifies that the bus driver was Danish. Twice. And that the attacker was not. Twice.
The case is a good example of why ordinary citizens with a non-Muslim background should always be very careful when dealing with these animals. You never know how they will react when you confront them. I guess this bus driver was lucky that the knife did not hit his throat instead.
From Ekstra Bladet, as translated by TB:
Bus driver knifed at Nørreport Station- - - - - - - - -
A Danish bus driver was stabbed in the face by a young man at Nørreport Station in Copenhagen because he did not want to allow the man, who was holding an invalid ticket, on the bus.
The perpetrator, who is between 16 and 18 years old and described as a foreigner [some media reports describe him as Afghan], tried to enter the bus on an invalid ticket, Thomas Dürr from Copenhagen Police says.
Tried to run after the perpetrator
“The bus driver refused to allow the man to enter, and tore up the invalid ticket. That made the man strike the driver,” Thomas Dürr says.
The driver ran after the perpetrator but suddenly had to stop when it was clear to him that his face had been cut.
“The victim first discovered that he had been cut when he ran after the attacker, and therefore he cannot remember what he was actually cut with,” Thomas Dürr says.
The victim was on bus 150S to Gammel Holte.
Victim’s condition not critical
The Danish bus driver has been taken to Rigshospitalet. He had a long cut along his temporal bone that needed stitches, but his condition is not critical.
According to witnesses at the location, it was a dramatic sight when the driver tried to run up the young attacker. He had blood running down his neck and all over his shirt, a witness says, who also states that it looked like the victim gave up the chase because he suddenly felt bad.
The perpetrator disappeared on foot towards Israels Plads, Thomas Dürr says.
He was between 16 and 18 years old, nicely dressed, and of an ethnic origin other than Danish.
From Ritzau via Jyllands-Posten, as translated by Zonka:
Bus driver knifed down
A bus driver was Thursday afternoon stabbed with a knife in the face, when a scuffle broke out in a bus near Nørreport.
According to the central duty leader at the Police Yard the perpetrator is a young man 16-18 years old, “nicely” dressed, and has an Afghan appearance.
The man escaped after the deed across Israels Plads towards H.C. Ørstedsparken, where the police used dogs to track him.
The bus driver has been taken to Rigshospitalet, but his condition is not thought to be critical.
