On Monday morning, a woman was stabbed several times by her ex-husband in Tilburg in Noord-Brabant.
Neighbors, who heard the woman shouting on the street at around 8 am, managed to separate the two. According to one of the eyewitnesses the 37-year-old ex-husband came either to pick up or to bring back his kids. The children were inside the house when the man stabbed their mother.
The 30-year-old woman was in critical condition when ambulance personnel took her to the hospital.
Hartvannederland.nl reports that the police arrested the man in Rucphen, close to Roosendaal, several hours after he fled the scene in the Van Hogendorpstraat.
