Update: Gabriel Hussein, aka Dasaev, surrenders to police in the case of two American basketball players stabbed in Braila, claims he is the victim

Daniel Gabriel Hussein, nicknamed Dasaev, interloper from Braila, has surrendered on Monday to the local police, following the media arguments that he was the main suspect in the case of the two American basketball players stabbed in a pub.

Dasaev has surrendered to the authorities, but claims innocence regarding the attack and that, on the contrary, he is the victim, ‘Obiectiv de Braila’ reports.

He argues that he was not involved in the violent confrontation.

“It was said that I or someone else in Braila has something against them. It’s not true. I am a friend of all athletes. I like sports. I don’t know why it was rumoured like this. We are waiting to say we have no connection,” Gabriel Hussein said on Monday, when he arrived with his lawyer, hotnews.ro reports.

He was identified by police on the basis of video recordings on the terrace where the events took place, police are searching for the suspects involved.

Interloper Dasaev was sentenced to jail in Spain, several years ago, for pimping and rape, he is known for violent offenses. He had to be jailed for 20 years, but was released after only 7 years of imprisonment, in 2014.

Braila local press recalls that in 1997, Dasaev, who was 21 at the time, together with several members of a criminal group, entered by force in the house of a man in Vidin neighborhood and beat him. With their faces covered by hoods and armed with swords and axes, the group members acted quickly, trying to leave the area without leaving any trace. In 1994, the same Dasaev allegedly beat another main in Brăila, who needed 100 days of medical care. This action came to the attention of the Brăila prosecutors five years after the offense and only after Dasaev had already been sentenced to jail for another offense, namely robbery and insult of a policeman.

Prosecutor: Only one person used the knife

The prosecutor investigating the case said on Monday that investigation on attempted murder against two persons is ongoing, on the use of dangerous objects and on disturbing public order. The investigator added that one of the victims was in danger of losing his life, and the images that reveal the incident “are very clear.”

According to the prosecutor of the case, Mircea Ciutac, after viewing the images recorded by the surveillance cameras on the terrace, it was concluded that only one person used the knife, wounding the two basketball players. Other men were also involved in the conflict, less than ten, who are being searched for.

“Investigations are carried out for attempted murder attempts on two persons, disturbing the public order and use without right of dangerous objects. In fact, a man, in a pub in Braila, wearing a knife, hit two persons. One of them was in danger of losing his life and needs 40-45 days of medical care. The second one has lighter injuries and needs 25-30 days of medical care. It is premature to say if the offender is the person who surrendered to the police, but he hasn’t given in without a reason. Now, before the hearings, we can say that only one person used a knife,” Prosecutor Mircea Ciutac said, quoted by digi24.ro.

He added that the two athletes were attacked due to a spontaneous conflict. “It was a spontaneous conflict, the recordings are very clear. There are several persons involved, less than ten, they haven’t been heard, are still being searched after,” Ciutac said.
