Around 4 a.m., a police officer saw a man and a woman arguing violently and tried to calm them down, police said. But this was also in vain. The couple then became very aggressive and antagonized the police. After the arrest, bystanders intervened and one of the officers was punched in the face. In the process, an 18-year-old man from Tilburg was also arrested, also carrying a punching bag. A 19-year-old resident was later arrested on suspicion of insult.
On the same night, a 28-year-old man from Den Bosch was arrested for stealing a safety vest from a police car during a brawl in the city center’s Heuvelring. He then got into a car while drinking. In addition, a 45-year-old man from Tilburg was arrested on suspicion of assaulting a 30-year-old man in a cafe in Piusplatz.
