Paris: the thug in Valentino's ram car throws himself into the Seine before being arrested

Incredible nocturnal tribulations in the center of Paris.

A 24-year-old man was arrested overnight from Monday to Tuesday in Paris after trying to rob the luxury bag and shoe store Valentino (VIIIth) using the ramming car method.

Around 1:50 a.m. at 273 rue Saint-Honoré, the store alarm sounded.

The police from the anti-crime squad go to the scene and see a blue Citroën leave the scene hastily.

The criminal hit the storefront with his car.

Officials note that the glass front doors were destroyed and the thief took about 150 luxury bags with an average value of 700 euros and jewelry.

The police are chasing the vehicle.

Arrived in the sector of the Madeleine, the thief loses control and it is the accident.

The driver takes to his heels and rushes towards the Concorde.

Drafted by the river brigade

Under the effect of panic, he throws himself into the Seine to escape the police.

“The current is so strong that it can engulf a man in seconds,” notes an official.

A team from the river brigade intervenes quickly and fishes out the suspect.

“He suffers from a major wound on the level of the left arm.

The young man was taken to Cochin hospital to receive treatment,” the same source added.

The thug was taken into custody and the investigators of the first judicial police district are responsible for carrying out further investigations.

The police found all of the stolen goods in the trunk of the Citroën.

The "ram breaks" as the police say in their jargon are quite rare in Paris.

In July 2021 a team had tried to throw a car against a bank in the 20th arrondissement without managing to steal the money from the distributor.

On the other hand, the communes of the Parisian suburbs are more targeted by teams of specialists.

We remember these five Romanian burglars, aged 26 to 36, indicted at the beginning of last February in Créteil (Val-de-Marne), for theft in an organized gang.

They are suspected of having, since December 2021, broken seven telephone shops in Val-de-Marne, Le Loiret, Seine-et-Marne and Yvelines, for damages of more than 250,000 euros.
