News server ostrava-online.cz reports that in the early morning hours of Thursday, 8 May, a 21-year-old non-Romani youth vulgarly abused a 42-year-old man of Romani origin in a gaming room in the town of Orlová. Among other loud racial insults, the youth also shouted "Sieg Heil".

After the verbal assault, the youth punched the man in the face. Doctors treated him for nasal fracture at a hospital.

The drunken youth was arrested and taken into custody to sober up. The Police Commissioner has charged him with rioting, attempted bodily harm, and defaming an ethnicity, nation or race, for which he faces up to five years in prison if convicted.
