Operations manager Cristina Mezo was woken when a man in his 20s threatened with what looked like a firearm on Saturday night.
– But you can never be prepared for something like this. It is the first time we have experienced a situation with such a weapon in the hotel. I am very happy that neither colleagues nor guests were injured, says the operations manager to Bergensavisen on Saturday.
At 4:50 that morning, the police received a number of reports about the incident. People at the hotel reported a man threatening with what appeared to be a firearm.
Mezo tells the newspaper that the man in his 20s checked into the hotel together with a woman early on Friday evening.
According to the operations manager, the night watchman should not have felt threatened by the man in his 20s, but he has described the whole thing as an unpleasant situation.
– He has said that everything happened very quickly. The situation happened upstairs in the hotel room, and other guests were not affected by what happened.
The man was arrested nearby a short time later. Duty lawyer Sigrid Sulland says that the man has been charged with threats with weapons.
