    Man found with a knife stuck in his body in Herentals

    Local police found a seriously injured man with a knife stuck in his body in Herentals (Antwerp province) on Saturday evening. The man does not speak Dutch and officials have not been able to identify him. He was taken to hospital for emergency surgery. 

    A patrol in the Neteland zone found him in Herenthoutseweg at around 6pm. We still don’t know a lot about him. 

    A lorry with a Portuguese licence was found not far away. A woman behaving suspiciously was also seen nearby. She was taken into custody for questioning as police suspect she has some kind of connection to the victim. She also doesn’t speak Dutch.  

    The Prosecutor’s office has been made aware of the incident.
