MAASTRICHT. A student from Maastricht University was stabbed in her arm on the Brouwersweg on Monday evening. At about nine o’clock in the evening, the thief wanted to hold up the nineteen-year-old Polish girl. When the attempt failed, he stabbed her in her arm and finally ran off with her bag. The student was treated in hospital, where she received a number of stitches in her lower arm. The police carried out a door-to-door investigation, but the attacker was not caught.
The student was on her way to her room, having spent the whole day studying in the university library, said a police spokesperson. She was alone on the street when the attack was carried out.
The police are looking for witnesses to the robbery. The suspect is a Caucasian male of approximately 1 metre 80 in height with a somewhat robust figure. He was wearing a black hoody with green colouring on it and a cap inside the hood. The police can be reached at telephone number: 0900-8844.
