'Crossbowman Almelo wakes up from coma'

This is reported by RTV Oost. As a result, he can soon be heard by the judiciary.

The man (28) from Almelo stood bare-chested on his balcony at the M.Th. Steynstraat to swing a crossbow. It is not yet clear what exactly happened that day. A 70-year-old neighbor and a 52-year-old woman died. A nurse was injured.

The man has been admitted several times in the past with psychological problems. He was arrested in September with a psychosis, but also released. During a previous psychosis he walked naked through Almelo. The mental illness was known to authorities, but they could not offer any help.

Psychological help

acquaintances of the suspect said earlier that it is incomprehensible why he has not received help. The suspect is said to have already stabbed himself in the stomach, ‘as a cry for help’. He did have an operation. Not psychological help.

Mayor Arjen Gerritsen now wants the healthcare authorities involved to map out how the assistance, communication and cooperation went.
