A man was seriously assaulted on Thursday. At about 07:00 of that morning, local police received a report of an incident in Ockeghemstraat in Eindhoven.
Three men had beaten the victim with a helmet and a piece of wood near his home. In other reports, a metal pipe has also been used. The man sustained a serious wound on his hand. This was caused by a nail that had been driven into the plank. He was taken to hospital and treated. After the attack, the assailants fled on a scooter.
Officers were dispatched to the site and immediately started an investigation. It soon became clear that the victim and the suspected perpetrators had been embroiled in an ongoing conflict. This had escalated into the beating.
Based on statements from residents, the police were able to quickly locate the three suspects. Two brothers, aged 20 and 22, from Waalre and a 23 year-old-man from Eindhoven seem to be involved.
The police are continuing their investigation to get a clearer picture of the exact circumstances of the incident.
