Dramatic scenes took place in the night to Saturday in a firm in the Vienna district of Wieden. A 32-year-old is under strong suspicion of having doused a 28-year-old man with gasoline and tried to set him on fire – which the suspected perpetrator did not succeed in doing. As it turned out, the suspect is the man’s boss. The Syrian citizen was arrested. The reason for the crime: The 32-year-old was not satisfied with his work performance.The incident happened in the night on Saturday at about 3.25 am, as the police reported on Saturday morning. After the 32-year-old suspect had doused the 28-year-old victim with gasoline, “he probably tried to set the man on fire with a lighter,” according to police spokeswoman Barbara Gass. With the help of a 20-year-old witness, who was also present at the scene of the crime, the victim “was able to stop the suspect from his intention”.A scuffle subsequently ensued, it was said further, after which the suspected perpetrator first fled, only to return to the scene of the crime a short time later. There, however, he was already awaited by the police. The 32-year-old suspect was arrested.The interrogation of the suspected perpetrator on Saturday brought some light into the darkness: Thus it came to an argument between the 32-year old and the 28-year old first, because the older one was not satisfied with the work performance of its employee, reported Gass in the afternoon from the first interrogation. The 32-year-old Syrian denied that he intended to kill the employee and also denied having poured gasoline on the person in question. The man was taken into custody. The Vienna State Criminal Investigation Office, Mitte branch office, is investigating.
