On Facebook a video has surfaced showing a fight between a black boy and some bystanders.
The facts occurred at the Aarschot station. The male suspect, a 35-year-old from Aarschot, was arrested in the toilets of the station.
According to www.hln.be, the Police and prosecutor carried out an investigation into the serious case of racism.
The three attackers were identified with the help of the film made by the sister of the victim.
The male suspect, a 35-year-old from Aarschot, was arrested in the toilets of the station. One of the female suspects, a 43-year-old woman from Aarschot, offered herself to the police in the evening. Both were under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
The prosecutor’s office requested a judicial investigation on suspicion of intentional strokes and injuries with a racist motive, while Both suspects were brought before the investigating judge.
The man was arrested, the woman was released under conditions. The third suspect, a 31-year-old woman from Aarschot, was arrested this morning and was brought before the investigating judge this afternoon and later released.
“Disaster narrowly avoided,” she wrote on facebook
“The Liège Guillemin-Antwerp-Central train just passed but could be shut down quickly by the signal box,” says Infrabel spokesperson Thomas Baeken, adding that “a drama is so narrowly avoided.”
In the film it is about a discussion of some bystanders against the 15-year-old boy. Why and what the discussion initially went into is not immediately clear.
The victim tries to keep his calm but the bystanders continue to bother him and soon the boy gets hurled racist remarks to his head.
The moods become even more heated and a real fight arises where a man pushes the boy on the tracks.
The boy intended not to let himself do this but have no option and then pulls his attacker himself on the tracks where the fight continues.
Meanwhile, the other women are also on the tracks to join the fight. The older sister of the victim intervened to help her brother back on the platform.
She also got a few strokes herself. In the end, bystanders calmed things down and disassociate the fighting cocks.
