    The victim is Nuccio Garozzo, a police commissioner in Catania. He was stabbed with a razor by the home-invading foreigners. Afterwards the two attackers tried to escape by jumping out of the window of the residence in the centre of Catania.

    One of the two, an 18-year-old Gambian with a residence permit given to him for humanitarian reasons, was seriously injured and is recovering at Garibaldi Hospital after suffering from multiple fractures.

    The migrant had been recorder in December 2016 as being underaged and authorities noted “the presence of a serious genetic disease”, according to Catania Today. But the newspaper also that the teenager had a criminal record and had been reported for violence and drug dealing in 2017.

    His accomplice and fellow Gambian succeeded in escaping. The police inspector was reportedly wounded by a razor on different parts of his body, and had to be treated with 80 stitches at Vittorio Emmanuele Hospital.

    “An incident of extreme seriousness which confirms the level of insecurity that has been recorded in Catania, like many other parts of the country,” commented Mayor Pogliese.

    “Tomorrow morning at 10 at our police headquarters,” he continued, “I will meet the Catania police chief and the victim of the attack to concretely demonstrate the closeness of the institutions of the forces of order which must be adequately reinforced with (investigative) means and qualified personnel to fight the serious phenomenon of violence that is recorded and thus increase the level of resistance against criminal organisations.”

    On Facebook, Salvini blamed the attempted robbery of a Sicilian police commissioner on the EU migrant crisis, and said his country was becoming “insane” as a result of the migrant influx.

    Italy’s Interior minister said according to his proposed “Safety Decree” any asylum seeker who commits a crime would be “kicked out of our country without exception”. He concluded by saying that those “who bring war into our homes are not welcome”.

    Garozzo woke up to find two men having broken into his home in Catania, Sicily, and was reportedly attacked with a razor blade when he tried to apprehend the burglars.

    The commissioner’s wife and daughter were at home with him when the two Africans broke into the house by scaling a water-pipe and climbing through an open window.
