In connection with the Incheon villa knife riot, the National Police Agency has dismissed the position of the Incheon Nonhyeon Police Station, which is responsible for taking responsibility for the poor response.
The incident in question occurred on the 15th.
When the police saw the perpetrator wielding a weapon at the residents downstairs, they fled the scene.
In the end, the victim was stabbed in the neck with a knife and was in critical condition.
As the incident became known, critics arose that the armed police were the first to flee from a situation in which the lives and safety of the people were in danger.
In two days, more than 200,000 people signed a petition to the Blue House to punish the police, and a civic group accused the police chief of negligence.
Two police officers who were dispatched to the scene are currently on standby.
In the end, Commissioner Kim Chang-ryong made an official apology and dismissed Incheon Nonhyeon Police Chief from his post.
The National Police Agency announced that it would conduct a strict investigation after the inspection, and today will also discuss ways to strengthen on-site response capabilities in the event of a violent incident with the heads of cities and provinces across the country.
