    Young man questioned after assaulting policeman in Emines

    A young man has been questioned after assaulting several policemen from the Orneau-Mehaigne brigade at around 1a.m. on the night between Saturday and Sunday. The incident took place at the Emines Youth Centre, in the municipality of La Bruyère, according to Namur’s deputy prosecutor. The individual hit the policeman who is now on sick leave. Organisers at the Youth Centre called the police when a young man became aggressive. The arrival of the police aggravated the individual and he attacked them. He is due to appear in court on Sunday. The public prosecutor’s department submitted an application for a warrant of arrest against him for resisting arrest.
