    One woman ended up in the tracks of a Brussels metro station and another one was placed under arrest after an argument between them abruptly escalated on Tuesday.

    Around midday, an argument broke out at the central De Brouckère metro station in Brussels between two women for reasons that remain so far unclear.

    The dispute between them culminated when one of them pushed the other onto the tracks of the metro station after she refused to offer the other an apology, La Dernière Heure reports.

    The Brussels public prosecutor said they had arrested one woman, aged 51, who was the subject of an attempted murder investigation.

    The woman who was pushed under the train tracks, whose age and identity are unknown, was pulled back onto the platform safely but is in a state of shock.

    The woman in police custody is, according to the Francophone outlet, known to law enforcement authorities.
