The latter would then have decided to get back in his car, before rushing to the terrace of the restaurant. “The victims are between 10 and 52 years old”, we explain on the side of the Antwerp prosecutor’s office. “Most of them are minor injuries. A 49-year-old man, however, was seriously injured, without his life being in danger. »

The perpetrator was arrested overnight from Tuesday to Wednesday, before being brought before the investigating judge. He must answer for attempted manslaughter.
