A 14-year-old boy was injured in a stabbing incident in the asylum center on Kievitsblekweg in Oisterwijk, Noord-Brabant, on Sunday. He was taken to hospital. The perpetrator, another boy, can't be found and has therefore not been arrested yet, reports.

The two boys got into a fight at around 2:30 p.m. The victim was stabbed in the face. The police are investigating and already spoke to multiple witnesses.

The asylum center in Oisterwijk houses both adult asylum seekers and unaccompanied child asylum seekers, according to the newspaper. The center is located in the woods and was established over 20 years ago.
