The young man who was wanted by the police because he was said to be walking around armed in the West-Flemish municipalities of Kortrijk and Waregem has been arrested, announced the local police.

The Vlas police zone and the municipality of Waregem announced that the man was arrested via social media.

“All security measures are lifted. Everyone can walk the streets normally again and all pupils can go home,” said Waregem on Twitter.

In Waregem, some 12,000 people had to stay indoors because the police were looking for a suspected armed man who had been walking around on the Vives college campus in Kortrijk earlier in the day.

The young man was arrested in the municipality of Avelgem, south of Waregem, according to reports by VRT.
