Man fights off attacker with fire extinguisher blast
Thursday, 11 April 2019
A 29-year-old man was attacked on Tuesday morning in the centre of Antwerp after he tried to intervene in an argument between a man and a woman.
The aggressor hit the man a few times and tried to drag him from his car before eventually smashing his window with his elbow. The victim then chose to defend himself, driving his attacker out of his car with a well-aimed fire extinguisher blast.
Police are looking for the perpetrator and the woman. The use of a fire extinguisher as a defence did not result in an official report for the victim.
