THE THREE MINORS who were injured in a stabbing incident in The Hague have been released from hospital, police have confirmed. 

The incident occurred on The Hague’s main shopping street earlier this evening. 

Police are still searching for the suspect and spokeswoman Marije Kuiper said it was not clear if the stabbing was a terror incident. 

The families of the three minors have been contacted, police confirmed on Twitter

Emergency services are said to be at the scene and police helicopters are flying over the scene. 

It has been reported that the incident happened at a department store believed to be on or near the Grote Marktstraat in the centre of the city. 

The Hague police said in a statement that they were looking for a man, about 45 to 50 years old, in a grey jogging suit.

The area was busy with Black Friday shoppers. Footage and images emerging on social media show areas of the street cordoned off as bystanders stand behind police tape, and a strong security presence.

Police have asked for information from members of the public who may have seen something or have images of this incident.
