Since this Saturday, wearing a mask is compulsory in Belgium in shops and many other closed public places. A late decision but welcomed by many citizens. But for some, this measure has struggled to pass …
This Saturday, in a Lidl store in the north of Antwerp, a 28-year-old woman showed up at the cash desk. As Het Nieuwsblad explains, she was not wearing a mask and the cashier asked her to think about taking one when she next visited.
A remark very badly taken by the young woman, who has gone completely mad. She insulted and then attacked the cashier. Still according to our colleagues, she then threw flower pots and degraded a vehicle. Staff intervened and closed the doors to the store.
When the police arrived, the customer was rushing through the doors of the store with a shopping cart. Ultimately, four store staff were injured. The police arrested the young woman and the store had to be closed for long minutes.
