The man hit his partner
A case of serious bodily harm led to the arrest of a drunken 51-year-old in Vienna-Josefstadt on Monday shortly after New Year’s Eve. He allegedly hit his 46-year-old partner in the face with his fist in a bar at around 1:30 am and gave the victim more blows to the back of the head as he left the location.

An entry and approach ban and a temporary weapons ban were issued against him; the breath test showed a value of 2.02 per mille. The injured woman was taken to a hospital by Vienna’s professional rescue service.
