Amsterdam – The police arrested a 29-year-old man on the night of Wednesday to Thursday, April 11, on suspicion of involvement in an explosion earlier that night on Charlotte BrontĂ©straat in Amsterdam-Zuidoost.

Around 12:45 a.m., the police received several reports of loud bangs on Charlotte Brontéstraat. Ultimately it turns out to be an explosion in a porch house. The explosion caused a small fire, causing one resident to inhale smoke. The fire brigade extinguished the fire and the (pregnant) woman was taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Firearm and knife
Based on indications by observant citizens, a 29-year-old Amsterdam resident was arrested shortly after the incident in the Hoorneboeg area. The man had a firearm and a knife with him and was taken into custody for further investigation. Despite the arrest, the police can still use the help of witnesses. Did you see anything before, during or after the explosion? Or do you, for example, have footage from security cameras, video doorbells or dashcams?

Amsterdam again has many incidents involving explosive objects this year. This is worrying, because the danger environment for entrepreneurs, local residents, passers-by and emergency services on site is obviously great. Heavy illegal fireworks, jerry cans with flammable liquid or homemade explosives do not belong in public spaces – where people are busy working and living – and create life-threatening situations. That has to stop. The police are working hard to track down suspects involved in this form of excessive violence. This has already led to several arrests, convictions and significant prison sentences. But to track down the perpetrators, the police desperately need local residents. After all, they know their neighborhood best. Even if something is not right in the street scene, they notice it first. Passing on information to the police is therefore crucial.
