    While walking along the Avenue Michelet on Sunday evening, two immigrants demanded that the victim hand over his phone, but he refused and resisted. He was stabbed several times by the two individuals.

    One of the attackers did not hesitate to stab him several times in the chest and hands to make him let go. Quickly, the police officers were alerted to this attack and arrived on the spot. They managed to find one of the presumed perpetrators and arrested him.

    The latter had a knife on him. He is said to have been the assailant and was taken into custody. His accomplice has not yet been caught after he fled with the victim’s cell phone.

    Seriously injured, the victim was evacuated to hospital and operated on urgently.

    During his arrest, the defendant rebelled during his transport to the police station where the he allegedly yelled on several occasions, “Allah Akbar” reported ACTU17. An investigation was opened for attempted aggravated homicide, promoting terrorism and theft. The investigation was entrusted to the city police station.

    On Saturday, November 21, a man attempted to run down municipal police officers. The perpetrator eventually fled before being taken into custody.

    In a statement published on November 22 on their Facebook page, and reported by France Bleu, the municipal police of Roubaix, in the north of France, announced that they had taken a “man” into custody. He is accused of trying to ram into a patrol of municipal police officers.

    At around 10:20 pm, the patrol had decided to carry out a certification check on “a group of individuals gathered at Place Carnot”. They were joined by another municipal crew responsible for securing the premises, suggesting that these individuals all had an immigrant background. A few minutes later, while the control continued, a Clio appeared in Place Carnot, and headed directly towards the police.

    According to the police statement, the driver seemed very determined to hit the police, not hesitating to rush toward the officers. The police then had to take out their handguns. This maneuver was sufficient to dissuade the driver who then fled.

    Immediately, the two patrols set off in pursuit of the driver. The latter was quickly arrested, barely a few minutes after his attempt. The suspect was immediately arrested and presented to a judicial police officer. Aged 20, the young man was born in Roubaix in 2000. He has also been charged with possession of narcotics and driving under the influence of these same narcotics.

    In Montpellier, a passenger on a tram threatened other passengers with religious violence: “I’m going to kill you, cut your throat, you son of a bitch. You will see in 2021, Islam, we are going to kill you all ”.

    On Friday, November 20, at around 5.30 pm, an individual in the tram defended terrorism. Regional daily Midi Libre called it “an isolated act but at the very least shocking”. Several terrified users of line 2 gave the alert by dialing the emergency number 17.

    In Gagny,  in the east of Paris, a transaction on the barter site Leboncoin ended in a bloodbath. A 23-year-old young woman died overnight from Sunday to Monday after being stabbed three times by an immigrant according to sources.

    Regional daily le Parisien reported that the victim and her brother had felt aggrieved by the barter and wanted to return a motorcycle. “They came to explain themselves because the machine did not work,” a judicial source said. Neighbors described the perpetrator now in police custody as “very nice, calm, smiling”.

    In Perpignan, an immigrant from Morocco has accumulated 14 convictions after being arrested under 13 different identities. He has already spent a total of 108 months, or almost 11 years, behind bars. A month after his last release, a young woman accused him of rape but he denounced the latest charge as a “plot” against him, regional daily L’Indépendant reported.

    “In fact, the prison is where you went most often. You have a loyalty card ”, the judge Régis Cayrol commented.

    In Bordeaux, an African immigrant Mike Yassegou, a 28-year-old resident, has been sentenced for “rape” and “robbery with violence” committed in 2018. The accused had been in pre-trial detention since December 4, 2018 in Béziers.

    On Monday morning, at the request of the civil party lawyers, we learned that the latter had followed a woman as she left the Tivoli bar in Limoux, before cornering her at home and raping her. The perpetrator assaulted her and then robbed valuables from her apartment. The victim had to be hospitalized for almost two weeks.
