In the place where the Old Jelgava highway reaches a dead end, not far from the industrial area, the surrounding, possibly local workers, witnessed a shocking picture.

On the side of an abandoned building, a man attacked a woman and forcibly, threatening with a weapon, tried to drag her into his car. The Olaine police station, having received information from eyewitnesses about the possible abduction of a person, reacted immediately.

Two crews of the patrol police were sent to the scene, said Ugis Licis, head of the criminal police department of the Olaini section of the State Police.

The woman was alive and well, she managed to escape from the seizure of the attacker, but the offender disappeared from the scene.

The guards of order were shown the approximate direction where the man went by car. Additional forces were called in, and soon the wanted vehicle was found abandoned on the side of the road, less than a kilometer from the site of the attack.

The driver was nowhere near, he fled into the forest. The information at the disposal of the law enforcement officers did not indicate anything good, so it was important to find a man before he does something unpredictable.

Police were also assisted by witnesses who saw the suspicious man.

“I stood in this place. My husband bathes here regularly. We go here every morning. My husband swam, and this man near the shore completely undressed and climbed into the water. He bathed, got dressed, noticed that cars were driving and quickly ran towards the forest The police arrived, asked me if I had seen him. I said that I had seen him and showed him where he ran away. He arrived in a light-colored car, I won’t tell the brand. Yes, there was one. After that, the police took him out of the forest and two more cars drove up. They detained him. My husband and I left after that, “the witness said.

Dog handlers were brought in and tried to track down the man and the weapon-like object he used in the attack on the woman. Shortly thereafter, a man born in 1958 was arrested, he pleaded guilty for what he had done.

To find the weapon used by the man, the police attracted rescuers, since, perhaps, it was during the bathing that the suspect, hiding his tracks, threw the pistol into the lake. The police do not disclose more detailed details in the interests of the investigation.

It is known that three cartons of cigarettes without excise stamps were found in the car’s interior, in addition, a search was carried out at the place of residence of the detainee. There, law enforcement officers searched hard for weapons and ammunition.

Other things were found for which the suspect will have to answer. In particular, 225 liters of diesel fuel, eight liters of vodka without excise tax and another 13 blocks of contraband tobacco products. A pre-trial investigation has begun under the article on threats of murder and grievous bodily harm.
