Polish criminal spotted by Polish policewoman…in Bristol

From: The News
As she strolled the streets of Bristol, west England, a Polish police woman on a three months training course in the UK, spotted a suspected Polish robber and took action so he was arrested.

The officer, who has been serving in police in the eastern city of Lublin for eleven years, went to Great Britain for a three-month training. While she was on patrol in Bristol, the woman recognized Krzysztof R., who was on the run from Polish police. She had seen the criminals’ photos on most wanted list.

Krzysztof R., who had several warrants of arrest issued on his name, is accused of robbery and assault.

When the officer recognized the criminal she informed Polish, which issued the European Warrant of Arrest for Krzysztof R. and British police, who detained the criminal on 23 December 2009. The man was completely surprised to see policemen arresting him, equally to his family which visited him for Christmas.
