A man was arrested in the garden of the president of the N-VA and mayor of Antwerp, Bart De Wever, in Deurne, on the night of Thursday to Friday, local police said. Bart De Wever told the newspaper Het Laatste Nieuws that he himself had held in check, using an air rifle, the individual while the police arrived.
The youngest daughter of the Antwerp strongman noticed an intruder with a flashlight in the garden of the homestead. Bart De Wever was obviously quite intimidating with the suspect and the police were able to stop the man who seemed a little confused. A search was also carried out at his home. His intentions are unclear.
