"Dressed in black and wearing masks, carrying hatchets and hammers, they immediately threw stones at the police station. The inspector came out of his car, and received several stones in the back and head. He is unable to work for now. He took refuge in the police station, where he appealed to other inspectors who were still in the vicinity ", said Christian De Coninck, spokesman for the Brussels-Ixelles police.
