The suspect would have thrown bricks to people on the Stationsplein and then kicked a woman off her bicycle at the railway tunnel on the Koninginnelaan. Another victim was beaten by the man.
After a report about the first two incidents, the police started a search. For this purpose agents from Weert and Venlo were also deployed. The suspect was ultimately arrested at the Hambeek on the basis of information from a witness. He was taken to the police station for questioning.
According to the police, it is unclear exactly how many victims there are. At least two people have reported. Other victims and witnesses are requested to register.
A spokesperson for the police can not tell you how the victims are doing.
