A shoplifter who was injured as he tried to flee from two store workers has died in hospital.
The Polish man was stopped as he tried to leave the Sligro store in Gouda on August 11. He was knocked unconscious when he ran into a glass door. Two male members of staff held him down until police arrived, but the officers were unable to resuscitate him.
A spokesman for the prosecution service said he died on Monday, 10 days later, having failed to regain consciousness. The store workers, aged 56 and 57, have been detained as suspects and are being questioned on Tuesday.
The men have been identified as suspects so they can access their legal rights, the prosecution service said, adding that no decision had been taken on whether to bring criminal charges.
