The police became involved at around 4:20 p.m. after receiving a report that a naked, bloody man walked into a primary school on Van der Waalstraat. He told the police that he was kidnapped and held against his will in a flat building. He managed to escape through a small window while his kidnappers weren't looking and fled to the school. The victim gave the officers the description of three perpetrators. An ambulance crew treated his injuries at the school. Around 4:50 the police arrested a 20 year old fom Dordrecht on Radarstraat on suspicion of involvement in the incident. Officers then staked out the flat building on Christiaan Huijgensstraat.
