    Heesch

    The suspect is an asylum status-holder and lives in Heesch in the Netherlands. It is the second refugee arrested this year in the province of Brabant for a fatal crime.

    The police confirmed the background of the suspect after an inquiry by Dutch daily De Telegraaf to the community of Bernheze, under which Heesch falls. “Today a search took place in his residence in Heesch. The investigation is still in full progress, and we are still looking for witnesses, especially the cyclist who was riding over the Hescheweg in Heesch on Sunday. The suspect will be brought before the examining magistrate tomorrow,” said a spokesperson from the East Brabant police.

    In the village there is a lot of anger and sadness over the murder of the teenager who, as it now seems, was attacked and stabbed to death for no reason. It quickly became known in Heesch that the suspect was the 25-year-old migrant. He had previously caused a nuisance in the village and is known to the police. It was made public on Monday that the suspect was arrested in a confused state shortly after the murder.

    In spite of the enormous impact of the deadly stabbing and multiple attempts by De Telegraaf, Mayor Mariecke Moorman refused to comment on the incident on Tuesday.

    Teenager Rik van de Rakt was found dead Sunday morning next to his bike in Oss at the intersection of Julianasingel and Dr Saal van Zwanenbergsingel in Oss. It later turned out that he was stabbed to death.

    As it appears from camera photos, the perpetrator also tried to stab a woman. But she was able to escape the attacker. The police are still looking for witnesses to both attacks. The police say a terrorist motive is not yet ruled out. “There are no indications in that direction. However, at this stage, we are keeping all scenarios open,” said a spokesperson from East Brabant police.

    He called his stepfather, Mario, and screamed for help,” a friend of Rik’s told De Telegraaf. For the grandparents, it is still a big mystery exactly what happened on Sunday morning.

    Four years ago, Heesch was turned upside down by large protests against the arrival of an asylum seekers’ center. Dead pigs were placed in a tree and eggs thrown against the windows of the town hall. The mobile squad had to intervene against protesters. The center was not opened.

    The Sudanese is the second refugee in custody in Brabant on suspicion of murder. Last month police arrested a resident of the asylum seekers’ center in Echt for the murder of the 56-year-old Dutch man, Frank Schrijen, from Boxmeer (a major figure in the carnival world). The suspect is from Trinidad and Tobago.

    The lawyer for the Sudanese suspect in the stabbing in Oss has not yet responded to requests for comments. De Telegraaf does not know the person is yet.
