    A suspect has been arrested in the case of a woman stabbed in the middle of the street on April 2 on Chaussée de Ninove in Anderlecht. The information was reported by Bruzz and the Belga news agency, citing “a good source,” however the Brussels Public Prosecutor’s Office has not yet confirmed this information.

    On April 2 at 7:20 AM, the attempted murder occurred on Chaussée de Ninove in Anderlecht. The victim – who was accompanied by her three children at the time – was stabbed by an individual who fled to the Gare de l’Ouest.
