Today in the early morning hours in Býchory, Kolín district, an unidentified perpetrator threw a flaming torch into a Romani home. None of the victims suffered physical injury. Police suspect racial motivation.
"At 12:30 AM a group of people walked around the Romani home shouting racist slogans. One of them then threw a flaming, wrapped stick, resembling a torch, into the house. The family put out the fire themselves. Fortunately no one was injured and the damage is estimated at about CZK 100," Soňa Budská, spokesperson for the Central Bohemian Regional Police, told news server Romea.cz. The regional police are taking over the investigation and will pursue it as attempted grievous bodily harm.
