The 19-year-old man in police custody after the stabbing of an ex-candidate of "Top Chef" on the night of Sunday to Monday, was referred for the opening of a judicial investigation of the count of attempted voluntary homicide, according to our information.
He must be presented to an examining magistrate today, specifies the parquet floor of Paris.
As we revealed on Tuesday, this suspect is not the author of the stab wound that injured the young Franco-American chef Thomas Chisholm in the right thigh Sunday evening in front of the ephemeral Grand Palais (Paris VII).
The police, on the other hand, would suspect him of being at the initiative of the brawl which opposed two groups at the time of the events, then of having designated a target for his troops.
The ex-candidate of Top chef would then have been stabbed by mistake, instead of this target.
On Tuesday evening, investigators were still trying to identify the perpetrator.

It was in this context that Thomas Chisholm was stabbed in the back of his right thigh.
