On the evening of October 28, a 42-year-old taxi driver was driving through Barvířská Street, where he got into a conflict with a group of people in front of BarBar. According to the police, they were moving on the road as if it belonged to them. Two taxi drivers did not allow to drive on.
After shouting, they got angry and then left for the bar. But after a few minutes they came again. Four young men between the ages of 25 and 35 and one older man estimated to be between 50 and 55 years old. Two of the group may have been family members as “you’re not going to tell my dad to get off the road” was heard.
The oldest of the attackers had a robust build, gray hair, a little longer on the top of his head, shorter and more mature on the sides. He had trimmed gray stubble on his chin. He was dressed in a beige bomber jacket.

“Subsequently, the men punched the taxi driver in the face and head, and he also received a so-called headbutt from them. He took at least 12 punches. He was physically attacked by four members of the party, seconded by the fifth. A man in a bomber also ‘slammed’ a taxi driver,” said police spokeswoman Ivana Baláková.
In addition to other bruises on the head and face, the taxi driver suffered a deep laceration under his eye, which required medical treatment – he was stitched up with thirteen stitches at the regional hospital in Liberec.
The police called on witnesses of the attack to contact them on line 158 or on 974 467 100.
