Vegan streaker arrested for ‘planning attack’

An animal rights activist known as the vegan streaker has been arrested on suspicion of planning an attack on an unknown target.

Peter Janssen is suspected of preparing an attack and possessing a gun, the public prosecution department said in a statement.
Two computers have been taken from homes in Wissekerke and Vught, where the 24-year-old’s mother lives.
The department is now trying to find out who Janssen’s possible targets were.
Janssen, who was arrested earlier this year for releasing 2,500 mink on a fur farm, first hit the headlines a year ago when he disrupted filming of the Paul de Leeuw tv show, wearing only underpants.
He has also been caught streaking at the ABN Amro tennis tournament, a Champions Trophy hockey match and the Tilburg Ten Mile road race.
