Many people were present on the terrace of the catering facility. That is why the policemen decided to form a line and clear the terrace, in order to create a working space for themselves. That did not go without a hit or a hit. A 29-year-old woman from Axel did not want to listen to the order of the officers to leave. She kept trying to reach the catering facility. She scolded officers and made striking movements. After she was told several times to leave and did not do so, she was arrested.
The suspect of the assault / vandalism could eventually also be arrested and taken away. It concerns a 32-year-old man from Stekene. In Torentijd it turned out that he was quite under the influence of alcohol (760 ug / l). The woman he allegedly hit was treated at the scene by paramedics.
