After the incident which left two injured in the ranks of the police, an investigation was opened to identify the people involved. A search was carried out in Anderlecht on Wednesday 23 September at the home of the suspect, who was not present at the time.
A 17-year-old was also arrested immediately after the incident. The juvenile judge had decided to place the minor suspect in an open institution.
The Brussels-North police zone (Schaerbeek-Evere and Saint-Josse-ten-Noode) is planning to become a civil party against the suspects of the incident in order to support its staff.
As a reminder, following the facts, the Brussels public prosecutor’s office explained that a police patrol issued a ticket for a traffic violation when it was caused by the young minor. The police then wanted to check his identity. The minor in question called on people from the neighborhood to come to his aid. Officers had managed to stop the suspect but were wounded in the melee.
