    Police in the Netherlands are searching for the culprit of a stabbing attack that took place in The Hague on Friday evening and left three minors wounded.

    The stabbing attack took place at around 8:00 PM at Grote Marktstraat, a popular shopping area in the centre of The Hague that was busy due to Black Friday sales.

    Three minors were wounded in the attack and brought to hospital. However, all three victims were released from the hospital, Dutch police explained in a tweet.

    At around 12:00 PM on Saturday, Dutch police tweeted to say that the search for the culprit of the attack is ongoing.

    Police initially said they were looking for a man in a grey jogging suit about 45 to 50 years old. However, police spokeswoman Marije Kuiper later said that the initial statement was wrong and that they did not yet have a description of the suspect, explains Al Jazeera.
