The West Flanders Public Prosecutor’s Office (Bruges section) indicated that Knokke’s Louis Vuitton shop was the target of a ram-raid attack last night (between Tuesday and Wednesday). A 35-year-old suspect, of Romanian origin, was arrested after the incident. Two other potential suspects fled the scene.
A Jeep vehicle shattered the window of the shop, which is situated on Kustlaan. The perpetrators managed to steal handbags and jewellery.
One suspect was intercepted when fleeing, but still in the vicinity of Knokke.
Shortly before this attack another incident, which took place with a similar modus operandi, had been unsuccessful.
