Knife-wielding man arrested after City Hall evacuation
A confused, knife-wielding man, who caused the temporary City Hall in Zevenaar to be evacuated around 12:30 Friday afternoon, was finally arrested by an assault team around 15:15. The man threatened to hurt himself for reasons yet unknown. Police locked the entrance to the Town Hall and tried to talk to the man. When that remained unsuccessful, an assault team was brought in. Police are questioning the man about his motives. The man will be enrolled in a counseling program, according to a police spokesperson.
