Dutch police release drawing of attacker of 12-year-old girl

A 12-year-old girl was stabbed on Van Rijslaan in Delft at 4 PM on Thursday. The attacker came out of nowhere and stabbed the girl with a sharp object. Delft Police have now shared a composite drawing of the attacker on Twitter.

They are urging anyone who recognises the man in the drawing to come forward. The suspect is described as a white male around 19-years-old, about six feet tall, with short hair. At the time he was wearing a white T-shirt and light coloured jeans.

“A composite drawing has been made of the suspect who stabbed a 12-year-old girl out of nowhere with a sharp object last week. If you recognise this person, please contact the #politie#Delft via 0900-8844.”

Young witnesses

Another young girl was with the victim when the attack happened. The victim was taken into afterschool care opposite the park before being rushed to hospital, reports RTL Nieuws.

Due to the park’s proximity to the school and the time of day, many school children witnessed the stabbing. Officers consoled the witnesses.
