The Vienna police are still looking for those perpetrators who are said to have brutally beaten and robbed a 79-year-old in a home invasion in Neubau. The pensioner died a few days later in hospital. According to the police, further information has now been received after the announcement of a reward.
The new information is now being examined in detail, the executive said on request. In the raid on May 19, the investigators could not rule out either an intention to steal or a sexual offense. EUR 50,000 for useful information EUR 50,000 was offered on Tuesday for important information that led to the arrest of the perpetrators. Last Thursday, the case was also dealt with in the Servus TV format “Fahhrung Österreich”. There were already seven tips. There have been two more since Tuesday. Questioning was no longer possible. Among other things, the woman had suffered serious head injuries. She survived in hospital for five days, but the police were unable to question her due to her poor health. The police are still asking for the public’s help in this case: Has anyone been told of this crime or has anyone heard that a person with relevant perpetrator knowledge talked about it? Did you make any suspicious and relevant observations before, during or after the crime in the Vienna-Neubau area, Bandgasse 9? Did anyone see the victim accompanied by other people? Are there ‘elderly’ women who were also attacked in their home by an unknown person and became the victim of an (attempted) crime but who, out of shame or fear, did not report it to the police? Tips – also anonymous – are accepted in every police station as well as directly from the Vienna State Criminal Police Office on telephone number 01-31310-33800.
