A 27-year old man from Groningen was stabbed in the face on Sunday morning. He died from his wounds in hospital today. 

The victim was assaulted on Sunday morning by a 20-year old man from Assen. After the stabbing, a 40-year old man from Groningen physically confronted the suspect, and was stabbed in his shoulder. He had to go to hospital as well, but did not need to stay there.

A group of "aggressive men" followed the suspect. The police had to become involved to ensure, with their batons, that the man from Assen did not attack. The suspect was apprehended in the Kostersgang in Groningen.

No details about the motive have come out.
