Place/Location: exact location is unknown

Identity of the victim(s): undefined

Identity of the perpetrator(s): undefined

Police officers in full uniforms, helmets and shields attacked a man who approached them. The man showed no sign of aggression. After several blows, the line of policemen took a few steps forward and covered what happened next to the victim.

Among the police, many were dressed in light-coloured shirts with short sleeves, which is generally very uncharacteristic. This group visually looks like the group of police officers in the # 483 case. They were also followed by the same looking police truck.
