brussels - A masked man walked into a school in Brussels around 2 pm on Monday to threaten students with a firearm. That reports the newspaper La Dernière Heure. The Brussels public prosecutor's office confirms the news and has opened an investigation.
The man wore a mask from Salvador Dali, which can also be seen in the Netflix series 'La Casa de Papel', when he entered the Léon Lepageschool. The man has not yet been identified.
The man was on the first floor when he invaded a classroom and threatened the pupils. According to Nieuwsblad, he would have threatened to take their cases with them.
Brussels parquet spokeswoman Ine Van Wymersch reports 'The mask was recovered and confiscated. The weapon was not found. So we do not know yet if it was a real firearm. '
A teacher finally intervened and the masked intruder left. There were no injuries. 'The perpetrator is being tracked down, but nobody has been arrested for the time being,' says the public prosecutor.
