Police arrested three suspects on Wednesday, potentially involved with the riots after the match between Ajax and PSV in Eindhoven on March 1. The suspects are a 51-year old man from Veldhoven, 28-year old man from Son en Breugel and a 34-year old man from Geldrop. 

The man from Geldrop reported to the police by himself after a call from the police, where as the other two were arrested in their homes. All the suspects have been banned from the stadium and prohibited from participating in any kind of PSV championship celebrations. Once the investigation is completed, the suspects will be summoned to appear in court.

An investigative team has almost completed analyzing the video of the riots. Police has been able to identify suspects disrupting public order and committing violence on the video in order to arrest the accused and bring them in for questioning.

Depending on the progress of identifying more suspects from the video, police is considering releasing some of the footage to the public to help catch the perpetrators.

All the three suspects are in custody for further investigation.
