In 2011 he robbed a lottery shop in Nuremberg and murdered the 76-year-old owner. He is caught and sentenced to imprisonment. Now he's on the run. The police search has so far been unsuccessful.
Regensburg (dpa / lby) - The police also searched intensively on Saturday for a prisoner who had escaped in Regensburg. Helicopters, search dogs and numerous emergency services are still involved, the police said in Regensburg. The search is also ongoing internationally. In addition, numerous tips from the population were received, which are being processed. A larger police presence was therefore still noticeable in Regensburg. But so far all efforts have been in vain.
The man was sentenced to prison in 2012 and was in prison in Straubing. He had to answer to the district court of Regensburg for resisting law enforcement officials. According to the police, during a break in the trial on Thursday, he and his defense attorney withdrew to a lawyer's room on the ground floor of the courthouse. As usual, the lawyer and his client were alone in the room. The 40-year-old used this opportunity to escape through a window.
The officers rushed after him, but couldn't stop him. According to the police, it was still completely unclear whether he was still in Regensburg at all.
The police asked witnesses to find the Algerian for information. She warned against addressing the man directly as he is considered violent. He is therefore 1.76 meters tall, slim and has shoulder to elbow length, wavy dark hair. The investigators asked that information about the whereabouts of the man should be given to the police directly via the emergency call.
