Former minister Dekker seriously injured after fall from road bike, walker arrested
Former minister Sander Dekker was seriously injured last night when he fell off his road bike in the dunes near Monster. De Telegraaf writes that an eyewitness saw that a walker grabbed Dekker by the arm and that he fell as a result. According to the walker, he was driving too fast. The VVD, of which Dekker is a member, does confirm that it is the former minister. Those involved say there is no reason to believe that the walker had a political motive in her action.

The 47-year-old former Minister for Legal Protection was taken to the hospital with serious injuries. He would have broken ribs, a collarbone and pelvis, among other things. He is not in mortal danger, insiders say.

The walker by whom Dekker would have fallen, a 42-year-old woman from Monster, is stuck. She is suspected of inflicting grievous bodily harm, or assault resulting in injury. Initially, the police said that the woman was suspected of aggravated assault and manslaughter, but that suspicion has since been adjusted.

The former VVD minister is an avid racing cyclist. He has fallen before while cycling. In 2015, he broke his hip when he fell during a bike ride in Spain. Two years earlier, he had already broken his collarbone and elbow after being hit over the head with his bike when he had to avoid a dog. He then appeared in the House of Representatives with both arms in a sling and a straw in his drinking glass.

Missing woman (27) found in house, man (65) arrested for human trafficking
A 27-year-old woman who had been missing for six months was found in a house in Amsterdam after a report. The owner of the house, a 65-year-old man, was arrested on suspicion of human trafficking.

The woman had been missing since 5 December 2021 from a closed care institution in Zwammerdam, South Holland. Three days later she was seen in Amsterdam.

In broadcasts of Opsporing Verzocht and Team West, the investigative program of Omroep West, attention was drawn to the disappearance of the woman. In it, photos of her were shown.

Someone who saw Opsporing Verzocht then made an anonymous report, the police say. The case is still under investigation. How the woman is doing, has not been disclosed.

Dutchman arrested for stabbing girl and woman in German primary school
In the German city of Stuttgart, a 24-year-old Dutchman has been arrested for stabbing a 7-year-old girl and a 61-year-old woman in a primary school. The man has since confessed, says the German police.

Both victims are still seriously injured in the hospital. The police rule out a political motive.

The girl was with a number of other children for a holiday program present at the primary school in the nearby town of Esslingen, when the Dutchman stabbed her yesterday. According to the police, the victim was chosen at random; the man did not know her as far as is known. By "courageous" intervention, the 61-year-old woman managed to stop the attack, after which the Dutchman fled.

The kitchen knife that the man used in the attack was found in his home in Esslingen.

According to the police, the man did not resist arrest. The suspect is still being psychologically examined. He is being held by order of an investigating judge on suspicion of attempted manslaughter.

Romanians with three stolen sheep taken off the road
In the Gelderland village of Beek-Ubbergen, three Romanian men were arrested for sheep theft. In the car in which they were sitting, the marechaussee found three sheep that were stolen from a sheep farmer in North Brabant.

Presumably the Romanians were on their way to the German border with the stolen animals from North Brabant. Sheep theft is a major problem in the east of the Netherlands. The police regularly receive reports of farmers who find remnants of slaughtered animals in their pasture.

The Royal Netherlands Marechaussee is a military service that also performs police tasks. The brigades of the Marechaussee are spread over eight provinces.

Woman stabs husbandWoman stabs husband over photo of herself
A woman stabbed her husband in a blind rage when she found photos of him with who she thought was another woman, failing to realise that the images were actually of her. The woman, who was identified as Leonora R, was arrested last week in Mexico after she stabbed her husband, identified as Juan N, multiple times on his legs and arms.

Leonora had found photos of Juan having sex with 'another woman' on his phone. Without giving her husband time to explain, Leonora began stabbing him over and over again while hurling insults at him.

The poor woman must have no confidence, and couldn't she wait for an explanation?

Is that a new story? I seem to remember that happening before at some point.

It was a reported news story, and you're right about it happening "before" ...

This incident occurred (or at least was reported) in January 2021. The earliest published report I can readily find is this 22 January item in Yucatan magazine:

https://yucatanmagazine.com/confuse...-after-seeing-her-younger-self-in-old-photos/

The story (with varying details and initial used in the wife's name) was subsequently published in multiple tabloids worldwide.

You're right, I was too lazy to check and just trusted my Fortean memory: "I don't remember it, so probably it's not on the board yet" :)

A man charged with killing five people and wounding four others in southern Norway when he attacked strangers with a bow and arrows and knives has pleaded guilty to murder and attempted murder.

Espen Andersen Brathen, 38, was reported by Norwegian news agency NTB to have said at the start of his trial at Buskerud District Court: “I admit criminal guilt for the entire charges.” ...

Update ... Bråthen has been convicted and sentenced to compulsory mental health care and payment of compensation.
Norwegian man convicted of killing 5 in bow-and-arrow attack

A man was found guilty Friday of murder and attempted murder for fatally stabbing five people and wounding four others in southern Norway when he attacked strangers with a bow and arrows and knives.

The Buskerud District Court sentenced Espen Andersen Bråthen to compulsory mental health care. Three forensic psychiatric experts who assessed him concluded he has chronic paranoid schizophrenia and was mentally ill at the time of the attack on Oct. 13, 2021. Both the prosecution and the defense had called for compulsory mental health care for Andersen Bråthen.

Andersen Bråthen was found guilty of 11 counts of attempted murder for shooting at people with a bow and arrows in Kongsberg ...

The three-judge court said the defendant had explained during the trial that started in May and lasted until June 6 “that he had decided to kill people in order to achieve rebirth. He said he thought he was going to go blind. The accused therefore believed that it was urgent to kill.” ...

Andersen Bråthen had watched “a large number of videos” showing situations where people were stabbed, and had explained “that he watched such videos to learn how to use weapons so that they became as deadly as possible,” the court said.

The 38-year-old’s defense lawyer, Fredrik Neumann, said, according to Norwegian broadcaster NRK, that his client “had delusions with religious and magical content.” ...

Andersen Bråthen also was sentenced to pay compensations to the victims.

Well that's an update for the Kate Bush song 'Babushka' In which a woman pretends to be another woman and then has an 'affair' with her own husband.

Echoing the Old West of John Wesley Hardin's stupid murder of someone for snooring too loudly, two women where shot, one fatally, at an Atlanta Subway sandwich shop due to putting too much mayonnaise on a customer's sandwich:
https://www.wsbtv.com/news/local/at...ver-too-much-mayo/JOYULNJF3BGRBO24NOT2UYETB4/

Police identify man accused of shooting 2 Subway employees over too much mayo, killing 1​


ATLANTA — Atlanta police have identified the man they say shot two Subway employees over a Subway sandwich with too much mayo on it, killing one woman.

The shooting happened at a franchise of the restaurant at the Circle K gas station at the intersection of Northside and Markham drive on Sunday evening.

Police said the man became angry after an employee put too much mayonnaise on his sandwich and opened-fire behind the counter.

A 26-year-old woman was killed and a 24-year-old woman sustained critical injuries.

A relative told Channel 2′s Tom Jones that the surviving victim, 24-year-old Jada Statum, was hit twice after she pushed her son under the counter to keep him from being hurt.

Police have identified the shooter as Melvin Williams, Jr. He’s been charged with murder, assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.

Turns out it was his partner’s house he repeatedly rammed. Her house & one next door had to be demolished.

Wellington pled guilty to a string of charges including culpable and reckless conduct to the danger of lives.

The 34-year-old was on bail at the time after a previous incident where he attacked girlfriend Sara Cassidy at a hotel in Edinburgh.
He was told to stay away from the 33-year-old after headbutting her, dragging her and pinning her against a wall.

But, despite the court order, the couple resumed contact and he repeatedly called her on the day of the lorry rage incident on 6 September last year.
The High Court in Glasgow heard Wellington had flown into a drunken rage after Ms Cassidy refused to meet him.
He had screamed down the phone to her: "I am going to park my lorry in your living room.”

When police arrived, Ms Cassidy was on the phone to Wellington who was overheard threatening that he was "coming back to finish it".
He added: "I told you I was going to ram it into your house."

The damaged truck - still carrying a load of woodchips - was found abandoned in a supermarket car park the next morning with Wellington's wallet inside.

He was remanded in custody and will be sentenced next month.

No sense of humour.

Four organisers of a joke Facebook event have been arrested in Egypt on charges of "planning a riot" and "using reactions... to make money".

"Helwan Real Batman Battle" was set up after two users argued in jest over whether they were the caped crusader. A third proposed that they dress up in superhero costumes and "fight a battle" in Cairo's Helwan district on the night of 13 August to "solve this issue".

"Whoever is still alive is the real Batman," the event's description said.

The post prompted a wave of memes, jokes and quotes, and attracting favourable reactions from Egyptian celebrities.

However, a few days later TV channels loyal to President Abdul Fattah al-Sisi expressed concern about the event, suggesting that it could be used to promote violence against law enforcement agencies.

I wonder if the argument began with "where's the beef?"

Argument in meat section at metro Atlanta Walmart ends with man shot, police say​

CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. — A man accused of shooting another customer at a metro Atlanta Walmart is now in custody. Riverdale police confirmed to Channel 2′s Darryn Moore that 18-year-old Matthew Thomas, Jr. will be charged with aggravated assault.

The victim was taken to a local hospital. His condition is unknown. When Channel 2 Action News arrived on the scene, dozens of police cars from several agencies were searching for the suspect.

Trying to rid an older man of "demons" could reap this Florida man a jail term.
Pinellas man arrested for battery after trying to ‘get rid of demons’

A Pinellas County man was arrested for battery on Tuesday for allegedly trying to “get rid of demons” from a victim.

According to an arrest report, Richard Dorris and the 72-year-old victim were together at an address when Dorris grabbed the victim by the forehead and began saying “religious satanic rhetoric,” advising he was trying to “get the demons out.”

The victim told Dorris to let him go and that he didn’t want to be touched.

Dorris refused to stop touching the victim. The victim tryed removing Dorris’ hands, but was unable to.

The report said Dorris pushed on the victim’s head so hard, it caused the victim to fall onto an ottoman, which slid across the floor, causing the victim to fall to the ground, cutting his forearm. ...

Dorris is charged with battery on a person 65 years or older, a felony charge.

Utahn upset over how Americans teach yoga fired at studio and owner's house, charges say

A Salt Lake man accused of firing shots at a home and inside a yoga studio — allegedly the culmination of an ongoing argument about how yoga was not being taught correctly — now faces a long list of criminal charges.

Joseph Nrsingha Caitanya Das, 32, was charged Friday in 3rd District Court with burglary, a second-degree felony; nine counts of discharge of a firearm and four counts of possession of a gun by a restricted person, third-degree felonies; and assault, drug possession and possession of drug paraphernalia, class B misdemeanors. ...
