After the reports, agents immediately rushed to the Schothorst, but unfortunately no longer found a suspect there. The colleagues do see that several car windows were heavily destroyed and that several homes had damage.
Sound betrays the suspect
While the colleagues make another attempt to track down the suspect, they hear a blow coming from the direction of the Nieuwerhoek. Officers run towards the sound, where they find a person matching the description. The suspect was on the roof of a house and was also engaged in destruction at the time.
Officers manage to talk the suspect off the roof, after which he is immediately arrested. The 21-year-old man from Amersfoort is currently still detained and is still being interrogated. He is suspected of multiple vandalism.
