They had previously been sent to the Hoofdpoort shopping center in connection with some men who were causing a nuisance. When they arrived at the scene, one of the men spoke in a supermarket. But instead of starting the conversation, the man immediately became defensive and insulted the investigating officer.

Insult and threat

The intention was for the man to leave the store, but instead he walked further into the supermarket. When the Boa wanted to prevent this, he saw that the man was making hitting movements towards his head. The Boa grabbed him and brought him under control because he had been arrested. In the meantime the police had already arrived. The man resisted and threatened the Boa. When the officers arrived, they took over the suspect, a 60-year-old man from Sprang-Capelle, and took him to the station. A report has been filed against him of insult and threat. He is also suspected of resisting arrest.
