The student was ending the evening with friends, after the bars in the square had closed, when a group of three young men and a young woman - some of them very alcoholic - would have stopped next to them.
They would have asked for beers from the group of the student, who would have refused, details
The student was then stabbed several times, particularly in the chest and left flank.
The victim suffered a cardiac arrest before being resuscitated by the Samu and then hospitalized with a vital prognosis.
Two suspects in pre-trial detention
The suspects, from Mayotte, had immediately fled but were quickly arrested by the anti-crime brigade (BAC).
The three young men were indicted for attempted murder but this criminal qualification should logically evolve into murder after the death of the student.
Rayan P., 21 - the main perpetrator of the stab wounds - and a 17-year-old minor - alcoholic and suspected of having provoked the fight with the architecture students - were remanded in custody.
A third 21-year-old suspect was placed under judicial supervision while a 14-year-old girl was taken into custody and heard as a witness.
Known to the police
According to our colleagues from France 3, the three indicted had arrived in mainland France, from Mayotte, a little over two years ago before settling in Clermont-Ferrand.
They were unemployed and the youngest, an unaccompanied minor, was followed by Childhood Social Assistance (ASE).
He was staying in a hotel.
All three were known to the police without, however, having been convicted.
Legal proceedings concerning acts of violence and carrying a weapon were opened against them, specifies France 3.
