Policeman punched during family brawl

A Police officer was assaulted while attempting to intervene in a family quarrel in Alsancak two days ago.

A young man had already hit his father and mother during the argument. When the policeman attempted to calm things down, Saffet Ozenc punched him several times as well.

Mr Ozenc has been charged with assault and appeared at Kyrenia court yesterday. His lawyer claimed that Mr Ozenc was suffering from depression and other psychological problems.

He was ordered to be detained at the Peace hospital for Nervous and Mental Diseases for observation, until police conclude their investigations.
