Violent scenes – women beaten and threatened: two arrests

The Viennese police had to move out twice on Friday for violent crimes against women. A 35-year-old is said to have beaten his wife in Döbling. In Margareten, a 61-year-old man threatened his wife with killing in front of the officers. Both men were arrested, and in both cases no entry or approach was imposed. In this context, the executive referred to offers of help.

The 35-year-old Syrian is said to have attacked his wife on Krottenbachstrasse in Döbling. In addition, he is said to have forced the 29-year-old to sign a waiver of custody of the three children together, the police reported on Saturday. The 35-year-old was arrested by alerted police officers. “There is a suspicion of continued violence,” said police spokesman Daniel Fürst of the APA.

Police officers threatened
In Margareten, residents heard a loud argument from an apartment and called the police. The 61-year-old Serb is said to have quarreled with his 59-year-old wife. When the officers arrived at the accommodation near the main train station, the man in front of the police threatened his wife with killing. The 61-year-old is likely to have consumed large amounts of alcohol for a long time and is said to have been violent against his wife again and again.

In this context, the police have again emphasized that violence in any form will not be tolerated. Victims and people who perceive violence should contact the police emergency number 133. The Vienna Intervention Center (01/585 32 88), the 24-hour women’s emergency number (01/71719) and men’s advice centers (01/603 28 28) also offer help and information.
