A few days ago in Yeosu, Jeollanam-do, a masked man in his 20s went into a police box and started shooting arrows and rioting.

However, it was later revealed that the police at the police box at the time did not catch the criminal, but rather hid themselves and called 112.

Reporter Park Seung-hyun of KBC reports.


The man in a mask shot an arrow gun inside a police box in Yeosu at 2:16 a.m. on the 30th of last month.

The arrow pierced the acrylic screen with a 'pop' sound, and the criminal stayed at the police box for about two minutes and then fled.

At that time, seven police officers were on duty, but instead of catching the criminal, they were busy hiding and avoiding in shock.

[Yeosu Police Box A Police Officer: The gunshots were really loud, and the police officers were human too, so I had no choice but to be nervous.]

In particular, I hid for over 10 minutes after the incident and no one pursued the criminal.

What's even more absurd is that he even called 911 on his cell phone to catch the culprit.

[Yeosu A Police Box Police Officer: If you are embarrassed, dial 112 first.

No matter how much the police.]

The police dispatched about 50 detectives to the police box and searched the area around the police box, but they could not catch the criminal immediately.

The perpetrator was arrested 12 hours after the crime at a house 5 km away from the police box.

[Yeosu Police Station official: They said that they came to the police box and fired a gun, so they urgently dispatched all staff and arrested them.] While the

police applied for an arrest warrant for a man suffering from depression, criticism of the initial poor response is growing. .
