A doctor being treated in an intensive care unit after being stabbed at a medical site in The Hague.
A man who was working as a substitute doctor was attacked inside the Seiderpark Heisalsen clinic on Apeldoornsestrasse around 10:30 am on Tuesday.
A 38-year-old man was arrested after being detained by witnesses to the attack and is currently in police custody. He is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
Police have given no indication as to the identity of the attacker or what his motives were.
A man who works in a neighborhood store told Telegraaf: “I heard from a patient in the waiting room that the well-dressed criminal walked out very calmly.”
A spokesman for Hadoks, a medical group in the Haaglanden region that includes Zuiderpark Huisartsen, said:
“Most of all, it had a great impact not only on the victims and their families, but also on the practice staff.”
A spokesperson for the Association of Family Physicians LHV said, “It’s horrible that something like this happened. It has had a huge impact on the practice and its staff. Our thoughts are with them.”
