Police in Sarajevo and Zenica arrested six persons on suspicion of being accomplices in a jailbreak this Sunday. A bank robbery and manslaughter suspect on trial escaped the court detention unit in central Sarajevo on a motorcycle, reportedly shooting at the guards during the escape.
The Sarajevo Canton prosecution said that the Zenica police arrested two persons on Monday, on suspicion of helping the detained defendant escape. The suspects will be transferred to Sarajevo. On Sunday, the Sarajevo police arrested four guards at the detention unit. The escape motorcycle was found a couple of kilometers away from the detention unit, in Sarajevo’s Ciglane district.
The man who escaped jail on Sunday is tried with a group for a bank robbery in Ilidža two years ago, in which a passerby outside the bank took a stray bullet and died from injuries. The robbers took 150,000 Euros from the bank.
