Date:  Saturday, September 10, 1983 at 2:30 a.m.

Location:  108 Gasthuis Street, Temse

The Killers are clearly in search of something specific at the Temse Fabric Factory. They break in, open boxes, and enter another area of the building. The armed men discover the building's janitor couple and attack the husband, Jozef Broeder and execute him. His wife is brutally attacked but survives.  The couple's two very small children are left behind in their appartment. They continue their search and leave with seven bulletproof vests, a smoke-colored vest, and a pair of camouflage overalls. As they leave they shoot at neighbors who peek out windows but do not cause further harm.

Loot: seven bulletproof vests

Casualties: one dead and one critically injured.
