A 16-year-old boy was seriously injured in Gouda on Friday morning when he jumped off a roof while running from the police, Omroep West reports.
The boy was one of six teenagers sitting on a roof on Kleiweg and making noise. Four of them left a youth institution without permission. When the police wanted to take them back, one of them jumped off the roof.
"He ran a bit over the roof and jumped - even before the cops could catch up to him - from the four floor building", a spokesperson for the police said to the broadcaster.
