Suspect finds pharmacy not place for sanctuary

In a strikingly similar case, a man accused of a debt-related attack in Kratie town on Tuesday was arrested after seeking refuge in a local pharmacy that proved to be less than hospitable.

Police said the suspect had approached a man near the market and stabbed him in the back then fled, attempting to hide out in the nearby pharmacy.

The shopkeeper, however, called police to take the man away, which they promptly did.

The suspect reportedly told police the attack was over a debt of $200.
