The two men had committed cruelty on the German side of the Eifel before fleeing to Belgium. The car was seen traveling in the lower town of Eupen. It is in this context that the Vesdre-Gueule area police tried to control it. Then heavy vehicles abandoned the vehicle and ran away.
Then a major police operation took place in the capital of the German-speaking community. The area around the vehicle, from Hotel Bosten roundabout to Schilsweg 54-57, was temporarily closed to traffic and messages were broadcast on the loudspeaker to encourage people not to leave their homes.
After several hours of intensive search, two people were arrested on the public highway in Eupen, indicating the police area, which declined to comment further.
Therefore, the whole device was lifted.
