The family of a man who died – presumably as a result of a violent attack in Saint-Gilles – has called on witnesses to come forward as authorities investigate the incident.
A 27-year-old unidentified man was found semi-conscious in Rue de la Victoire, in the Brussels municipality on Sunday night.
“My brother was found semi-conscious but we don’t know the exact circumstances,” the man’s sister said to La Capitale newspaper.
“He was reported to have been attacked at around 10:30 PM, after which witnesses called the emergency services,” she said, adding that her brother was thought to have died of internal bleeding after leaving the hospital at around 5:00 AM on Monday.
The public prosecutor has opened an investigation into the incident, and the victim’s family have issued a call for witnesses via the French-speaking outlet.
“On Saturday, my brother was wearing a black Adidas cardigan, light jeans and sneakers. He has curly, brown hair and is athletic,” the victim’s sister told the outlet.
