He broke the toilet in his cell and escaped

A 25-year-old man arrested in a riot against police managed to escape from a police station in Brussels by breaking the toilet bowl in his cell, investigators said on Tuesday.

The facts occurred overnight from Monday to Tuesday at the police station of the Brussels municipality of Molenbeek, hours after the suspect was arrested in the Belgian capital at the request of the Kortrijk Prosecutor’s Office (West).

Taking advantage of the lack of video surveillance in his cell “because the camera was faulty”, the suspect “removed the toilet bowl from the wall” and escaped through “a hole the size of an A4 sheet”, an AFP spokesman explained. For the police zone, the press confirms the information.

Finding himself in a corridor in the basement, he probably went through a window to enter the street, deceiving the vigilance of the police on duty at the main door of the police station, according to the same source.

This man, already known to a Belgian judge for several crimes and convicted several times, was arrested for not complying with release conditions.

According to the public prosecutor’s office in Courtrai, West Flanders, he is currently awaiting trial for mutiny against the police, which led to his reincarnation.
