An arrest was made on Tuesday connected to two false reports of a hand grenade at the Mad Fox club. Calls to police were made on March 6 and April 5 with phones or phone numbers that were used just once, according to broadcaster AT5.

The caller claimed there was a grenade at the club, which is below the W Hotel on Spuistraat, bringing police out to investigate each time. Nothing was found in those searches.

An explosion at the Mad Fox club early Friday morning was caused by a live hand grenade. There were no injuries reported in the incident, but it was followed up by another report later in the day of a hand grenade seen in front of the club's front door.

Amsterdam's mayor, Femke Halsema, ordered the club shut down, according to a statement from her office released late on Friday. The Spuistraat club is located underneath the luxury W Hotel in Amsterdam. It will be kept closed for an indefinite period of time to protect the peace.
