Doubling in home-jackings

A full sixty percent of home jackings happen in Wallonia.

Forty percent of home jacking victims are over 60 years of age. Business people with a lot of cash at home make up twenty percent of all victims.

The federal police’s Eddy De Raedt provides a definition of a home jacking: unlike in the event of a burglary there is always a confrontation between perpetrator and victim.

Violence is always used and home jackings are always planned.
