At the time, the traffic warden gave a car a stop sign on the Verlengde Heistraat. The occupants were not pleased and assaulted the traffic warden. He was beaten and kicked and his glasses were destroyed.
Then the car drove off. After witness statements and a photo confrontation with the victim, the 18-year-old suspect eventually came into the picture. He was arrested in his home on Monday morning and is detained for further investigation.
