Two who assaulted a tram driver are now recognisably shown
Last week, the police showed the unrecognizable images of two men who severely assaulted a tram driver. Because the pair have not yet reported themselves, the police will show the recognizable images tonight. The assault took place on Thursday evening, November 2, at the Centrum-West stop. At around 9 p.m., the tram driver confronted two young men at the stop who were blocking the elevator with an electric scooter. Almost immediately, the tram driver was attacked by the pair from several sides. The men punched and kicked the victim, causing the victim to fall to the ground. Bystanders caught the victim. The victim had to go immediately to the hospital where it turned out that he had a concussion. To this day he still cannot work.

Drug waste in van
On Wednesday, July 19, the police found a large amount of drug waste in a white van parked on Pallasstraat in Alphen aan den Rijn. The van had been unattended for some time in the middle of a residential area when the police were called. Investigation revealed that an unknown man parked this white van on Monday, July 10, around 5:15 p.m. It concerns a white Citroën Jumper with a German license plate with the license plate KK-X 1987. Investigation showed that this license plate was fake. On the left rear door, where a window should normally be, was an aluminum plate. There were two barrels of liquid in the loading space of this van and research showed that this was a residual product for the production of synthetic drugs. In Team West, the police show images of the man who parked the bus.

The men had stolen thousands of euros worth of make-up. Investigation showed that these three men had also stolen make-up from branches in Leiden, Zoetermeer and The Hague.
