Policeman shot by wanted suspect at Nadlac

A policeman was injured having being shot in his abdomen by a wanted suspect hiding in a deserted building in Nadlac (Arad County), Monday night. The prosecutors say the public order policeman was shot when he asked the suspect to show some identity documents.

A second policeman managed to immobilize the suspect, who was then taken to the police station.

Investigators report that the Police had received a phone call from a local, Monday night, informing them that a man had been seen to enter the unused parish house several times in the past few days. A public order patrol team of two policemen went to check the address, where they found clothes, binoculars and a box of surgical gloves. ‘Becoming suspicious, the policemen decided to wait and, at down, a man walked in. When they approached him, the suspect took out a gun and shot one of the policemen’ said Arad County Police Spokesperson Camelia Tuduce, according to Mediafax.

Yesterday, the doctors said the victim had been operated upon and was stable. The policeman is 29, married, with a two-year-old child. The assailant is a Romanian citizen of Slovak ethnicity who had been a wanted suspect since July 2008 for repeated theft and attempted murder.
