The Judiciary Police (PJ) arrested a 39-year-old man, who runs the bar at a sports club in Coimbra and is suspected of assaulting a client, according to police.

In a press release, the PJ states that the detainee is charged with crimes of serious bodily harm and possession of a prohibited weapon and will await trial in pre-trial detention.

According to the PJ, the incident happened on 23 August at that bar and was related to the detainee's refusal to serve the 32 year-old victim.

In an "altercation between the two", the detainee used a 6.35 millimetre calibre firearm and "made a shot that hit the victim in the left leg".
