Muslim family knocks out Dutch police officer in large fight over kidnapping

Numerous police officers rushed to the scene of a potential kidnapping in the Dutch city of Almere, local broadcaster Omroep Flevoland reports. The alarm was raised when a girl was forced into a car in the city’s Haven district.

The would-be kidnappers fought with police upon their arrival at the scene as they intervened. Footage of the incident has gone viral in the Netherlands.
The footage shows police officers being attacked by several family members, including a woman in a headscarf. One officer is seen lying on the ground having been knocked down by one of the family members.
Four persons were arrested and are still in custody. One police officer was transported to the hospital for a head wound.
The person recording the footage apparently considers the situation very funny as he laughs at the end.
According to police, it was a family incident. The potential kidnap victim was examined in an ambulance. It is unclear whether she had any injuries.
