Glass attack in the bar – Maurer: “Luckily unharmed, I’m fine”


In the middle of the city center of Vienna, Sigrid Mauer had a glass thrown at himself on Thursday by an opponent of the corona measures. On Friday, the green club boss himself spoke: “Fortunately, I am unharmed and I am doing well,” she wrote on Twitter, thanking for the numerous expressions of solidarity. The suspect (26) was arrested and admitted to the police that the attack was “a mistake”.

After the attack, according to Maurer, they received “hundreds of messages, for which I thank you from the bottom of my heart”. The broad solidarity of “colleagues from all parties and civil society” clearly showed: “Violence has no place.”

Freak in debate
The 26-year-old was in a guest garden of a restaurant in Herrengasse on Thursday evening, where Maurer and an employee were also sitting. Because the man was angry about the Corona measures of the past two years, he complained about it to the politician. A discussion ensued, during which the glass was thrown. The drinking glass didn’t break, Maurer wasn’t hurt.

Suspect: ‘It was a mistake’
Shortly afterwards, the 26-year-old was arrested. During the police interrogation, he regretted the incident. “It was a mistake,” he said in the interview, according to police. He was released for attempted assault.
