    Liege: hit with iron bar at stag party

    2 Liege youths in their twenties were brought before the public prosecutor for hitting another man at a stag party in Angleur (Liege), according to an official source on Sunday. A group of approximately 15 people were celebrating a bachelor party at 2:00pm on Saturday when a scuffle erupted on Rue Francois Paul in Angleur (Liege).

    A car brushed against the group and one of them protested.  The vehicle then stopped and 2 people got out, each armed with a metal rod. The passenger tried to hit one of the revellers whereas the driver successfully targeted the victim’s forearm.  The 2 attackers, allegedly shouting they did not like homosexuals, then fled the scene in their car but the incident was filmed on by one of the witnesses on their mobile phone.

    The 2 men were caught shortly afterwards at a petrol station in Rue d’Ougree, according to the Liege prosecutor’s office.

    Under arrest, the 2 alleged attackers were brought in front of the prosecutor in Liege on Saturday morning. They were released after being served a summons ordering them to appear in front of the criminal court in an abbreviated procedure, accused of intentional assault and battery with premeditation and the aggravating circumstances of homophobia.
