AMSTERDAM – Nine youths are still in custody on suspicion of public violence after a stabbing on a school playground in Rotterdam on Tuesday.
The police arrested 11 people after a dispute led to a stabbing. Two 17-year-olds were released today.
The reason for the dispute is still not clear. The incident took place at the Zadkine school complex on the Van Benthemstraat. A 21-year-old Rotterdam resident, not a student of the school, was taken to hospital with stab wounds.
As soon as the fight started school security called the police, who arrived on the scene within minutes.
The police arrested a total of 11 people between the ages of 15 and 20. One suspect, arrested on the Hofplein shortly after the incident, was carrying a gun.
