An off-duty police officer was assaulted Tuesday night in Villeurbanne. Three people, their faces concealed, would have attacked the peacekeeper before threatening him with death and hitting him with kicks and punches, details a police source confirming the information of Lyon Mag.
The 24-year-old was treated at Croix-Rousse Hospital and received a three-day ITT. An investigation, entrusted to the prosecutor's office of Lyon, was opened for violence in assembly and death threats against a person holding public authority. She will have to determine the motive for this attack to understand if the three suspects knew the function of the police officer or if he spoke about it during his assault. The latter are always sought.
