Police say the suspect that carried out the knife attack that killed a 30-year-old in March has fled the country

Two men were jailed yesterday and a third is still wanted in connection with the murder of a 30-year-old man last month in a Ballerup carpark.

Police say the victim, who died two days later from a stab wound that cut an artery, was probably attacked because of a debt he owed.

Two men, aged 32 and 34, were yesterday jailed for four weeks each for their involvement in the stabbing though police suspect the third man of actually carrying out the knife attack.

“We have a very good idea that it was him, but he is not in Denmark and needs to be extradited from another European country,” Martin von Bülow, the prosecutor for Copenhagen Vestegn Police, told Ritzau.

Bülow refused to release any information about the third suspect other than that he was younger than the other two men and that all three were from Ballerup.

According to Ritzau, the men were hired to carry out the attack in order to reclaim a debt.

The two jailed men allegedly drove the 30-year-old victim to the carpark where the attack took place.
