Witnesses speak of "the wounds that we see during the war".
Saturday, October 23, in Roubaix in the North, a man was "a priori the victim of saber blows", AFP learned on Monday from the departmental public security direction (DDSP) of the North, confirming information from The voice of the North.
Firefighters and police intervened at around 9 p.m. on Saturday to rescue a 26-year-old man, injured in the parking lot of a supermarket during an attack with a stabbing weapon that could be a saber, which was not been found, said the DDSP.
According to a resident interviewed by the regional daily, “a man approached a car parked near the parking lot.
He spoke with the occupant.
This is where the first stab wounds were carried out.
The victim got out of the vehicle.
It was then that three other hooded men came in, armed with sabers ”.
The victim had extensive hand injuries, including "severed tendons", to the legs and to the head.
She was transported to the Roubaix hospital center, but her vital prognosis was no longer engaged on Monday.
No witnesses were victims of the assault, which was also not captured by CCTV cameras.
The investigation was entrusted to the departmental security.
According to La Voix du Nord, the victim would be a young man aged 24, living in the Épeule district.
"It is a teaser that has nothing to do with organized crime, he certainly did not deserve to be attacked in this way," testifies a source who requested anonymity.
The investigation must be swift and these individuals must be arrested quickly.
