Belgium: Trucker attacked by gang of African migrant men with machetes

A gang of at least twelve migrant men attacked a truck driver with machetes, spears, and metal roads while he slept at an E40 motorway parking lot in Walshoutem, Belgium.

The Romanian truck driver told police that he was fast asleep inside of his vehicle parked at a rest stop along the E40 motorway when he was woken up by “rustling” noises coming from his trailer.

After he peaked outside to investigate, a dozen African migrants forced him to flee back inside of his vehicle after they attacked him with weapons, Belgian newspaper SCEPTR reports.

“They attacked him with spears, rods, and machetes,” police said. 

Despite the violent nature of the situation, police could only send one patrol unit due to shortages in available personnel.
