    Five youths broke into the Saint-Vincent primary school in the Brussels municipality of Anderlecht on Monday night, according to the public prosecutor’s office.

    After they entered the building, they tied up and beat up a teacher who was sleeping there. The youths fled in the teacher’s car, and caused an accident in the Molenbeek-Saint-Jean municipality, according to Stéphanie Lagasse, a spokesperson of the Brussels prosecutor’s office, reports VRT.

    The Brussels public prosecutor’s office opened an investigation for theft with violence and/or threats, and destruction of movable property with violence and/or threats. “The federal police’s technical detective carried out a trace investigation, both in the school and in the vehicle, in order to identify the perpetrators. No one has been arrested yet,” said Lagasse, reports Bruzz.

    The teacher taught until late, and probably fell asleep after he was done, according to the school secretariat. There is no indication that the perpetrators had anything to do with the school.
