STRANGE: Man Attempts to Question President with Knife & Syringe
An incident has occurred, yesterday afternoon at the Basilica in Piekary Śląskie, that has left police and those present scratching their heads. The police seem to be so confused by the situation that they have even released several contradictory versions of events.
In possibly a planned assassination attempt, an Aleksander Cz. arrived at the basilica some time before President Duda was scheduled to appear. He was apparently ‘ behaving strangely’ when he caught the attention of police spies in the vicinity. When he pulled out a syringe, police decided to act.
Searching him, they discovered that the syringe was filled with a strange substance and that he was also carrying a hunting knife and a list of questions. The man stated that the liquid inside the syringe was ‘salt water’ and that he had wished to meet with and ask President Duda some questions.
The man has been arrested and taken into custody where the police are trying to understand what was going through this man’s head. The case of Aleksander Cz. seems to be bringing up more questions than answers as even the man himself seems confused about why he was at the Basilica. Preliminary testing of the fluid from the syringe does not indicate any kind of narcotic.
