Five people were injured in a stabbing at a home in Dordrecht in the night from Thursday to Friday. Three of them are children, police said. The children are all under ten years old. The other injured are a man and a woman. The woman has been arrested as a suspect. They were all transported to the hospital.
The police are investigating the cause of the incident. A spokeswoman cannot say whether it is a family. “The exact composition is not yet known. But it looks like it is an incident in the domestic atmosphere.”
Mayor Wouter Kolff of Dordrecht says on Twitter that he is “shocked” by the stabbing incident. “The impact is always extra great when children are involved. Let’s hope for positive news about everyone’s injuries.”
