Five dead in knife attack at Belgian creche


Endangered Species

Three children and two adults are reported to have been killed in a knife attack at a creche in Belgium.

The frenzied attack took place at the child care centre in Dendermonde, west of the capital Brussels.

Peter Cleymans, the director of Dendermonde's ambulance centre, said that as many as 20 other children may have been wounded by the assailant.

The knifeman, whose motive was unknown, fled the scene after the attack and is being hunted by police, Belgian television reported.

There are not many details and even then they are often mixed reports emerging of this story but it sounds horrendous. Some of the papers are reporting one adult and one child as being murdered whilst others(as above) are reporting three adults and two children.

It would take one twisted psychopath to do such a thing. I hope the police catch them soon.

What he has done is apart from the psychical side of it all has mentally screwed up the kids as well, they will be scared, have nightmares for years and some maybe for there whole lives.

Apparently it was a looney who escaped from the local hospital.
A skinny man with red head and his face painted in black & white.
3 deaths, 11 wounded.

The Associated Press: Belgian prosecutors question man over stabbings

Prosecutor Christian Du Four told VRT radio that the man was not under the influence of drink or drugs at the time of the attack and that he was not under any sort of psychiatric care.
Investigators believe the suspect entered the Fabeltjesland creche at around 10 a.m. on Friday, in the town northwest of Brussels, wielding an eight-inch (20-centimeter) knife.
He had painted his face white with black patches around the eyes. Belgian newspapers likened the description to the Joker character from the latest Batman movie.
The suspect started slashing the children. One worker tried but failed to disarm him and another, a 54-year-old care giver, was stabbed to death, Du Four said. Two babies — a 9-month old girl and a 6-month old boy — were also killed.
That is really sad. So young and helpless, the knife would of been almost as big as them, it must be so terrible for the parents.

So.. this is him.. still a kid..

Motive still unknown.
Said to be a loner. Worked in a retail store, recently quit for unknown reasons. Described by his co-workers as bright.. and a movie-freak. :cute:


Oh, poppycock.
Bj, he looks like the male version of your picture.

Anyway, that is horrible. If he's medically insane, I wonder what they'll do him punishment wise.
