Armed passenger hauled off Bruges train

A passenger carrying a BB gun, a knife and a tear gas canister was hauled off the train in Bruges last week.  A passenger who saw the suspect take out the BB gun on the train alerted the police allowing them to act at Bruges station.

The BB gun was a small weapon that shoots plastic bullets.  It was around 6PM on Friday that the train from Ostend rolled into Bruges station with a passenger on board carrying banned weapons.  The man was hauled off the train at Bruges station where police discovered he was bearing a knife and a small tear gas canister too.  The suspect already has form.  He was sentenced to a suspended jail sentence in the past and has now violated the conditions of his liberty. He will have to appear in court in coming weeks.
