AMSTERDAM — Two people were injured in a stabbing involving suspected burglars at a law office in Amsterdam on Wednesday, but both victims are expected to live.

It is suspected that lawyer John Mul discovered the burglars red handed, after which a violent scuffle broke out. Eyewitnesses claim the lawyer stabbed one of the victims with a screwdriver.

The injured man was arrested, but his companion escaped the scene. It is possible that a third person was also involved in the alleged burglary, news service nu.nl reported.

Police said the second victim was an office employee. Eyewitness claim Mul was hit in the head with a drill and was also taken to hospital for treatment, RTL News reported.

The law office is located on the Langestraat in the Dutch capital's city centre. The office is owned by Mul, who defended the person suspected of a theft at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.
