Twenty-year-old Rotterdammer who was arrested for the fatal stabbing at a metro station in his hometown is officially suspected of manslaughter. He is also detained for two weeks, the Public Prosecution Service (OM) reports Thursday.

The OM also reports that the man is currently in full limitations, which means that he may only be in contact with his lawyer.

On Monday, a stabbing 20-year-old man from nearby Lekkerkerk died in the stab incident at Capelsebrug metro station. Emergency services were still trying to resuscitate the victim, but assistance was no longer of any use.

The two had a "disagreement" prior to the incident, witnesses told police. The OM states that it cannot currently share any further information about the circumstances.
