Ajax's Promes arrested in connection with stabbing

A police spokesman confirmed the arrest of a 28-year old man from Amsterdam on Sunday morning in relation to the stabbing of a man in July in the neighbouring town of Abcoude, but he did not confirm the man’s identity.

Citing witnesses, de Telegraaf reported that the incident happened at a family reunion hosted by Promes on the premises of a company he owns. The paper said the player got into a fight with one of his relatives there and stabbed him.

Police said the man stabbed, who was seriously injured in the incident, pressed charges last month.

Promes, who formerly played for Sevilla FC and Spartak Moscow, did not show up for practice at Ajax, de Telegraaf said.

He has scored seven goals in 47 international appearances for the Dutch national team, and scored Ajax’s second goal in their 4-0 win over PEC Zwolle.
