A 30-year-old man from Velsen-Noord is being charged with attempted manslaughter after he tried to strangle a police officer who was trying to arrest him at Carnival in Roosendaal on Sunday morning.

Around 00:30 a.m. on Sunday two police officers on Markt in Roosendaal noticed the man bothering some young women at an outdoor bar in front of a cafe, the police said in a statement. He hit and kicked the table they were sitting at. 

Ice skating

The Roosendaal fire department made skaters' night on Friday by rushing water to the Iceworld Roosendaal ice rink on Markt. Employees were unable to spray the rink with water themselves, because the pipes were frozen, Weekblad De Bode reports.

Instead of letting their skaters down, the Iceworld employees called the fire department for help. Firefighters rushed over, sprayed the ice rink with water and saved the skaters' pleasant skating evening. 

Some of the firefighting water ended up on the road. The road was sprinkled with salt to prevent it turning slippery.
