In January, a man at a quarantine hotel in Trondheim attacked an employee after being told that he could not have guests at the hotel.
The man in his 30s has been sentenced in Sør-Trøndelag District Court to 90 days in prison for aggravated assault and must pay NOK 30,000 in reparation to the injured, newspaper Adresseavisen writes.
In addition, he must pay NOK 338 in damages as well as legal costs of NOK 3,000. The defendant pleaded guilty.
The incident took place in early January this year at Quality Hotel Augustin in Trondheim city center.
The man arrived at the hotel at night and had a friend with him, who was not allowed in as the hotel functioned as a quarantine hotel in connection with the corona pandemic.
The employee informed the man that guests were not allowed and that he should not return to the room because he had finished his quarantine.
After disagreements, the man pushed the employee to the ground, and together with his friend, he beat and kicked him. In addition, they repeatedly hit the bar with a bar stool.
Finally, the victim escaped and ran to the hotel’s backyard, while the convicted man took four bottles of alcohol and left the hotel.
