A Syrian citizen, who attacked a shopkeeper in Bulgarian capital Sofia Monday night, has been charged.

He was arrested for 72 hours, and the prosecution would demand a permanent detention due to the higher degree of public danger of his crime, said spokesperson of the Prosecutor's Office Peter Belchev.

The 34-year-old Syrian Mohammed Ahmed Alsan Isharbe has been charged with attempted robbery and causing minor injuries to the shopkeeper.

The 19-year-old victim sought medical care but refused to be hospitalized.
