Hungarian police have arrested two Canadian nationals wanted on suspicion of murdering a 39-year-old man in Canada’s Hamilton in late February, the National Investigation Bureau’s Rapid Response Unit (KR NNI) said on police.hu on Monday.

The suspects, a 28-year-old Slovak-born man referred to as Oliver K and his accomplice, 26-year-old Lucy L, are also wanted for firing several shots at the victim’s 26-year-old girlfriend, KR NNI said.

The two suspects, who have been hiding in Europe, were taken into custody in Budapest’s 6th district on Saturday evening.

They were arrested in an international operation involving Canadian and several European police, KR NNI said. Authorities will decide about their extradition at a later time, it said.
