    The police are searching for a man who escaped from an arrest in Liege on Thursday afternoon.

    After a witness reportedly called the police in Liege to report three men with weapons on Rue de la Tonne in Saint-Walburge, Liege, the police were deployed and arrested two of the three men.

    The third man fled the scene, after which the federal police sent a helicopter to try and locate him, reported Sudinfo.

    By 2:15 PM on Thursday, the man who escaped had not yet been found.

    It is not yet known if the weapons belonging to the three men have been picked up by the police.
