The man arrested in the early hours of Friday morning for seriously injuring a police officer in Lisbon was subjected to weekly periodic presentations and banned from frequenting nightclubs, the PSP said today.

“In addition to the previous communication, the Lisbon Metropolitan Command of the Public Security Police informs that the detainee, after being brought before the Lisbon Criminal Investigation Court, was subjected to the coercive measure of periodic (weekly) presentations at a police unit, and was also prohibited from frequenting nightlife areas near the place where he committed the acts described.”

A policeman was seriously injured in the parish of Misericórdia, in the municipality of Lisbon, after being attacked by a 21-year-old man with a broken glass bottle, according to the PSP.

The man, who has no previous history of assaults or serious crimes, is suspected of the crime of seriously harming the physical integrity of a police officer.

The arrest was the result of “an alert to a scene of disorder involving several people who had already assaulted each other”.

At the scene, the police witnessed an argument between two men, “one of whom had picked up a glass bottle, already broken, and therefore more lethal, and moved towards the other with the clear intention of assaulting him”.

One of the officers placed himself between the two men and ended up being “violently assaulted on the shoulder blade”, according to the PSP Command. The police officer suffered “a deep cut, several centimeters long”.

Nevertheless, with the support of the other officers, “the policeman who was assaulted was able to immediately neutralize the aggressor, removing the bottle from his hand, preventing him from inflicting further aggression,” the statement reads.

The injured policeman was taken to São José Hospital for surgery.
