This was reported by Omrop Brabant. “The young people organized fireworks with jerry cans of flammable things that caused the fire,” said an eyewitness. “Eventually, the police formed a line and the police cleared part of Elisadonk clean.”
According to a local resident, fireworks were thrown at the officers. “It looks like a war in Rosendal,” sighs the neighbor. The discomfort would start at eight in the evening and last until about eleven.
Several arrests have been made. According to locals, it has been restless in this neighborhood for several days.
Locals around Heilig Hartplin and Philipslan also say they have been bothered by fireworks for two weeks. “They think they are outlaws.” And, in fact, they are, if they have been allowed to do so for fourteen days. Numerous cars also pass there. Drivers knock, people cheer. Really bizarre. “At some point you are in a completely different world,” said one local.
On Friday night, a 20-year-old man from Rosendal was arrested during a police check on Heilig Hartplin for refusing to show his ID. He is also alleged to have attacked a police officer. In addition, a 16-year-old boy was arrested after detonating an improvised explosive device. A 29-year-old man was arrested after 45 kilograms of fireworks were found in his shed.
Arnhem was also restless for days due to young people organizing illegal fireworks. A fire broke out at the entrance of a Presihaaf apartment last night. A local had to go out at night. Succeed. He pulled out the burning trailer for children on bicycles and threw an old carpet over the flames, writes Omrop Gelderland.
The young people have been busy for five days, mainly in the Gaitenkamp area. So far, seven suspects have been arrested. Mayor Markus went to see on Monday.
