Sui­cide threat.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

A Nige­rian man threat­ened to kill him­self with a piece of glass while hold­ing his 18-month daugh­ter in his arms at a po­lice sta­tion in Galatsi, north of cen­tral Athens, yes­ter­day. Of­fi­cers man­aged to con­vince the man to hand over the glass and sur­ren­der af­ter lengthy ne­go­ti­a­tions. The man had been ar­rested af­ter a fe­male com­pa­triot filed a law­suit ac­cus­ing him of rape. Po­lice found him at his home with his daugh­ter. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, of­fi­cers took the child to the po­lice sta­tion, since they had no le­gal right to sep­a­rate it from its fa­ther. Fear­ing, how­ever, that au­thor­i­ties would take his daugh­ter away from him, the man smashed an of­fice win­dow and threat­ened to slash his own throat.
