Police nab cannibal looking for victims online

BRATISLAVA — A would-be cannibal was arrested and in critical condition after being wounded in a gunbattle with officers during an undercover operation, officials said Wednesday. A policeman was also wounded.

The 43-year-old suspect used the Internet to search for a person who wanted to commit suicide and would agree to let him eat the body, police said. A Swiss citizen initially agreed but later changed his mind and informed authorities.

An undercover officer who pretended he was the would-be victim was used during Tuesday’s operation, police said.
