Police have arrested a 17-year-old youth after a woman was stabbed to death in Hilversum on Sunday evening.

Emergency services were called to a home in Laanstraat at around 7.30pm, but were unable to revive the woman. Police said she and the male suspect both lived at the address.

‘We are only releasing limited information because it concerns an incident within a relationship,’ a spokesman for the Gooi and Vechtstreek police division said on Twitter.
