A Syrian national arrested at a migrant shelter for attacking two police officers has been expelled from Hungary.

The man attacked officers on duty on Nov. 12 after they called on him to stop “a recreational activity” he was engaged in, at which point he started to attack one of them with a table tennis bat and the other with his fists. The officers were unhurt.

The man had been held in pre-trial detention at the Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg County police headquarters and the district court of Nyírbátor sentenced him to a 20 month prison sentence suspended for three years, and expelled him from Hungary for six years.
