The police neglected the family who requested protection from her husband, who left the psychiatric hospital without permission, almost leading to a great danger. His husband was in possession of his weapon at the time of the trespass.

According to the Busan Metropolitan Police Agency on the 4th, a man in his 60s who was diagnosed with a mental illness and was hospitalized left a mental hospital in Gimhae, Gyeongnam on the afternoon of the 28th of last month. After receiving the report of Mr. A’s unauthorized departure, the police rushed to the house where Mr. B’s wife was and took him to the Saha Police Station Gojeong District. The two children of Mr. B, who were outside, also arrived at the district office.

After that, Mr. B and his two children came back to the house with two police officers in the district to collect their belongings. However, the police officers guarding the front of the house abruptly left the scene leaving them behind. It was because a report of a missing child was suddenly received while waiting.

Even the police officers did not inform Mr. B and his children of the situation while leaving the scene. While the officers were away, Mr. A entered the house, and Mr. B evacuated her children first, and then she called 112.

The police, who responded to the report, caught Mr. A and handed it over to the hospital. Mr. A had a history of alcoholism and domestic violence, and even after she was admitted to a psychiatric hospital, it is said that she made death threats over the phone to Mr. B. It was also found that the police and hospital officials at the scene attempted to injure themselves with the weapon they had.

An official from the Busan Metropolitan Police Agency explained, “The police officer in question left his seat after a missing child was reported near Mr. B’s house at the time.” .

On the other hand, it was found that patient C in his 40s was also with him when he left the hospital without permission. C was caught by the police near the scene where A was caught.
