The police arrested a sixth suspect on Wednesday for assaulting a 14-year-old boy in Spijkenisse. Like the other five suspects, the boy arrested on Wednesday is underage and from Spijkenisse, reports.

The 14-year-old victim was attacked by a group of teenagers in Spijkenisse on Friday. Videos of the assault were shared on social media. They show the boy being beaten, kicked and hit with a bike while he lay on the ground. The boy sustained a broken nose, a torn earlobe, and multiple bruises.

The first two arrests happened on Monday. On Tuesday the police arrested three other boys. All five these suspects were still in custody on Wednesday.
