On Wednesday morning, the police arrested four boys aged 14, 15, 16 and 18 due to possible involvement in a stabbing incident in Spijkenisse on 22 October. In addition, a 25-year-old Belgian was seriously injured. What exactly happened is still unclear. The police keep “many blows to the arm, but takes into account a possible unsuccessful robbery”, says a spokesman.
That Thursday the Belgian parked his car at the Beverveen around 23.30, because he thought he had a date. He was probably addressed there by two men. At midnight, local residents heard calls for help, after which they found the man bleeding on a bike path a little further away. What has happened in the meantime is still unknown. The police spokesperson says that a failed robbery is possible, since the man still had all his belongings as far as we know.
The victim was hospitalized. He has undergone a number of surgeries and has been artificially kept asleep for several days. “The victim is now knowledgeable but he is in bad shape, so it is difficult to speak to him,” says the spokesman.
The four suspects are from Spijkenisse.
