    According to information obtained by BFM TV, both officers had to be taken to hospital.

    The officers were injured on Sunday night in Champigny-sur-Marne, in the Val-de-Marne, during their intervention at a party that degenerated after several dozen uninvited black individuals tried to force their way into a private party.

    Shortly before midnight, near a hangar in which a private party of about 200 people was being held for the New Year, the police were called out because “300 to 400 people” wanted to enter the building.

    The director of public security of Val-de-Marne, Jean-Yves Oses, told the media that the building could not accommodate so many people.

    The black crowd outside pushed to get in and “the door of the space gave in and the people entered inside in large numbers”, before being evacuated by the police who was on the spot to restore calm around 23:30. “A group of particularly violent individuals attacked the police who had to use tear gas,” Oses said. He confirmed that a team of police officers was violently attacked, and two of them were injured during this intervention.

    A captain and a policewoman, were respectively booked off for 8 and 7 days due to their injuries.

    “Two police officers, a captain and a guardian, found themselves isolated during an intervention at a private party that degenerated,” said a source close to the file. “The two police officers were attacked by the group, which broke the nose of one of the officers and assaulted the other, leading to concussions in the face,” said the police source.

    Two people have been taken into custody, but not for the aggression of officers but for public violence and throwing missiles, according to BFM TV.

    Several videos have been posted on social networks, filmed in Champigny-sur-Marne on Sunday night, showing a group of black individuals overturning a car, then physically attacking a policewoman in uniform, beating her up on the ground.

    Reinforcements were called on the spot to intervene quickly and law enforcement made use of stun grenades, indicated the source close to the file. Several vehicles, including two firefighting and civil security vehicles, have been damaged. The Commissioner of Champigny-sur-Marne, as well as the mayor of the municipality, both told the source that the authorities had not been notified of the party on the evening itself.

    The political class quickly came out on Monday to denounce the violence. At the forefront of these personalities, was the Minister of the Interior Gérard Collomb who reacted on his Twitter account.

    “I have just talked to the police officers who had been attacked, and everything is being done to ensure that the cowardly perpetrators of these unspeakable acts are apprehended and sentenced. Tackling our security forces is about attacking our Republic,” wrote the minister.

    One resident of Place Beauvau later went to the police station in Champigny-sur-Marne to “support” the police. He said: “The captain was punched in the face with a broken nose and the guardian was thrown to the ground and very frightened as she was surrounded by a series of people kicking her . Throwing a woman on the ground is deplorable, it is an unacceptable conduct.”

    The President of the Republic also reacted, denouncing a “cowardly and criminal lynching” on Twitter.

    “The culprits of the cowardly and criminal lynching of the police doing their duty on a night of December 31 will be found and punished.” He added: “We hail the police and fully support all officers baselessly attacked.”

    • Women police officers serve limited purpose. Talking down a drunk in a bar, dealing with female victims of assault, and children. We should never be used to quell mobs, especially black ferals.

      What France should do. Deport every black in that city. Ruthlessly, without exception, and without mercy. THAT would send a message.

        Please remember there are two sides to every story. The poster in question omitted to mention that he recently threatened to disclose my personal information.

        As for “unwanted attention”, if you go through my profile you will see I have not sent him any posts – with the exception of one post about two months ago. He is the one who reaches out to me on Disqus. Off-book he sends me about 10-20 messages a day and I simply tried to put some distance between us.

        That’s when he got mad. Believe what you wish, but since you are a “regular” on Mickey’s who was dragged into this, I just wanted to at least give my side.

        PS: I will edit this down and re-open my profile after you have seen it, as I don’t want to escalate this situation and have any more people involved.
