    The events occurred at around 5pm in Brussels in the Essegem neighborhood, reported Het Laatste Nieuws about the attack on Mathias Vanden Borre. “I was with my wife and my 7-day-old son visiting a photographer. While my wife and my son were still inside, I went out for a walk around the block,” said Vanden Borre. The N-VA member of Parliament knows the area because he himself lives nearby.

    “Suddenly six or seven young guys came walking behind me. They began yelling at me to intimidate me. I grabbed my cell phone and began to film. Then they came closer. I first got a kick in my side, then a blow on my jaw. One of them tried to steal my cell phone. Then I ran.”

    Vanden Borre was able to escape, but the African mob ran after him. “Then I ran another 500 meters and called the police.” They were at the scene within a few minutes with several teams, according to the MP.

    “My jaw is swollen, and I suffer from ringing in the ears,” says Vanden Borre, who visited a doctor on the same afternoon and has been booked off work for three days. He has no idea why the youths attacked him. “They came after me out of nowhere,” said Vanden Borre.

    A police spokesperson confirmed to HLN that an investigation of the attack was in progress. Whether the perpetrators have been caught is not clear. “A police officer immediately recognized one of the guys from my images. So I assume that they are well-known to the police,” Vanden Borre added. He hopes that the images taken, which he has put on social media, will help in the identification of his attackers.
