A 20-year-old Assenaar was arrested last night in Leeuwarden for assaulting a police officer. After a report of a street robbery, officers in the city spoke to a group of people.

    An 18-year-old woman from Leeuwarden then started hitting one of the officers a few times in the head out of nowhere. The Assenaar and a 39-year-old man from Leeuwarden also started beating and interfering.

    At the hospital, the policeman turned out to have a concussion and a large bump. The Assenaar and the two other people involved have been arrested. Whether they were also involved in the report of the street robbery is still under investigation.
