Yet it is a car that does not look like much, a modest Peugeot 206. Its driver goes to work, it is 7 am this Friday.

She stops at a red light, avenue Michelet in Saint-Ouen (Seine-Saint-Denis), when she sees a man forcefully enter her vehicle, push her out and start just as abruptly.

The victim, aged about forty, is still restrained by his seat belt when his attacker goes first.

“She was dragged about ten meters” before getting free, not without difficulty, indicates a source familiar with the matter.

Rescuers picked her up in a state of shock.

She had leg injuries, but her life is not in danger.

The 40-year-old was taken to a Paris hospital for treatment.

As for the author of the car jacking, he fled by slaloming between the vehicles and hitting several bodies in the process.

At this rush hour, traffic is particularly dense in this sector near Porte de Clignancourt.

The fugitive progressed painfully in the direction of Paris.

Arrived on the ring road, he thought he had got away with it.

This is without counting on the network of cameras of the City of Saint-Ouen "which recorded everything", indicates this same source.

The anti-crime brigade (BAC) of Saint-Denis then sets off in pursuit with the reinforcement of the departmental staff of the BAC.

The thief got out of the ring road.

It is located on the avenue du President-Wilson in Saint-Denis.

The flow of traffic prevents him from picking up speed.

Again, cameras locate him.

In the chase, the fugitive hits the front of a police vehicle.

Prisoner of traffic, two punctured wheels, he is forced to surrender when he arrives at the Stade de France and the Leroy-Merlin store.

He is finally arrested without incident.

Given the crowds, the police played it safe to avoid further accidents.

“They showed great technicality,” said a policeman.

The young man was taken into custody.

He is from Saint-Ouen and is already known to the police.
