A Sudanese migrant was arrested over the weekend after attempting to grab the firearm of a female Belgian police officer in the Brussels suburb of Schaerbeek during a coronavirus check.
The incident took place on Saturday evening when a police patrol of two officers, one of them a female Belgian-Moroccan officer, stopped the Sudanese migrant on the Rue d’Aerschot as he was not wearing a face mask.
The two officials attempted to persuade the migrant to cover his nose and mouth as per Belgium’s coronavirus guidelines, but the man immediately became aggressive toward the officers, Sudinfo reports.
