Main perpetrator on the run – jewelers gang investigated after brutal coup


A current example from Wiener Neustadt shows how important international exchange is for the work of the police: After a brutal attack, local investigators, in collaboration with colleagues from four other European countries, were able to investigate a three-man gang of robbers. Two suspects are in custody, but the main perpetrator (42) is not yet.

Shortly before Christmas 2020, three masked men stormed into a jewelry store in the middle of Wiener Neustadt. The robbers immediately punched and kicked the 57-year-old jeweler, dragged him to the back of the store and tied him with zip ties. Then the strangers fled with a safe, jewelry from the display cases, and six-digit cash. The seriously injured victim was able to drag himself into the entrance area, where he was noticed by a passerby. “The man is still suffering the psychological consequences today,” it is reported.

In exchange with the authorities in Spain, Italy, Germany and Romania, they tracked down an ex-prisoner (42) who had multiple criminal records.
