Dozens of Eindhoven police spent last night searching for a man with an axe. 

The man used the weapon to threaten people near an Aldi supermarket around 9 PM on Thursday, before driving away in a car. At least 15 police cars were dispatched in search of the man, as well as police dogs and a helicopter.

 

Police searched for the car by license plate, and when it was spotted later in the evening a chase ensued. It ended on the Oirschotsedijk, where the man fled on foot into a cornfield.

In spite of search efforts, police say around midnight the suspect managed to get away. They will continue to search.
