The Brussels public prosecutor has launched an investigation into an assault on a sex worker in her sixties who had to be hospitalised with a broken arm.
Police are working to identify the alleged perpetrator or perpetrators of the attack, who beat the 63-year-old unidentified sex worker while she was on a street of the municipality of Saint Josse, RTBF reports.
The incident took place at around 10 P.M. on Wednesday on Rue Linné, the same street where last year a 17-year-old man stabbed a sex worker to death, sparking protests for safer working conditions in the sector.
