Amsterdam – The police made two arrests on Tuesday, February 6, in the investigation into a series of violent incidents in Groningen, Oude Pekela and Winschoten.
The investigation into the various incidents, including several explosions, has been ongoing for some time. That larger investigation ultimately also led to a 16-year-old boy from Zaandam and an 18-year-old man from Amsterdam. They were arrested in Amsterdam on Tuesday morning.
The two suspects are in custody and will be interrogated about their possible involvement. They are both under restrictions and that means that as the police and the Public Prosecution Service we cannot comment further on their case at this time.
The investigation into the various violent incidents continues. Eight arrests have previously been made in the investigations into explosions in the Herestraat in Groningen and the Langestraat in Winschoten. The police shared images of explosions in Feiko Clockstraat in Oude Pekela and Wezellaan in Winschoten on Monday. It shows two suspicious people. Tips and information about these images and other incidents remain welcome.
