A CCTV camera captured images of an aggressor at the corner of Prague's Veletržní and Dukelských hrdinu streets, brutally attacking another man on the sidewalk for no apparent reason and beating him almost to death. The incident took place at around 4:30 AM on Sunday. The 24-year-old attacker rained punches on the man after he went down and then, even when he was motionless, continued to hit and knee him in the head. The instigator at one point had made as if to leave, but returned for a second 'wave'. Police arrived at the scene within two minutes of being notified, catching the suspect and providing first aid to the injured party. The instigator could be charged with attempted murder which carries a sentence of up to 10 years in jail.
