The police immediately started an investigation on Sunday evening. We currently assume that the victim in the Oude Boteringestraat, near the Rode Weeshuisstraat, was assaulted by one or more people.
The police eventually found the man in the Oude Ebbingestraat, near the Rode Weeshuisstraat and the Kwinkenplein. Emergency services were started at that time and the victim was taken to hospital.
Circumstances and suspect(s)
The investigation into the incident is on-going. The police are looking for CCTV footage that can be secured. The victim has already been spoken to. Ultimately, we want to clarify where the assault and the stabbing incident took place, who was involved and what the circumstances of the incident were.
The police are therefore looking for witnesses to the assault and the stabbing incident and what preceded this.
