On Wednesday evening, 20 Janaury, someone, apparently, randomly stabbed a woman in Strijpse Street. This is the second time in as many weeks that this has happened.
According to the police, on that evening, at around 21:00, they received a report of an incident on Strijpse Street. A man had, allegedly, attacked a woman. When paramedic examined the woman, they found that she had, in fact, been stabbed. She was taken to hospital.
The 51-year-old woman had been walking along the footpath Strijpse Street. She suddenly felt a hard blow to her back. She saw a man walking away in the direction of Trudoplein.
According to the victim, he had a light coloured skin. He was wearing dark clothing, possibly a padded jacket and an unusually large face mask. The motive for the attack is unclear.
Police searched the area with a dog, but to no avail. They are, of course, investigating the incident. They’re trying to find the perpetrator and are asking any witnesses to come forward.
