This corner of the Paris region has a bad reputation. A man was seriously injured by several stab wounds, during a brawl occurred Friday night in the area of the station of Villeneuve-Saint-Georges (Val-de-Marne). During the night, the injured man, whose identity has not yet been established, was still between life and death in hospital.
It was around 18:30 p.m., in the street of the gendarmerie, that a witness warned the police after catching two men fighting. One of them is armed with a knife and strikes his opponent three times in the throat, chest and sides. "It's a place, located behind the station and near the Seine," says a source close to the case. When the police arrive on the scene, the bleeding victim lies on the ground. "She is conscious but seriously affected. She was taken to the hospital by the Samu. She had to be operated on." The police tried to recover CCTV footage of the city but the operation proved useless because the scene was obscured by the foliage of the trees.
They seemed to know each other
The police questioned the witness, who remained on the spot. He assures that these two men seemed to know each other. He filmed part of the incident with his mobile phone and handed the file over to officials. "After the fight, the author seemed reluctant to flee," says a source close to the case. The witness asked him to stay but he chose to take the powder of escampette." According to our information, he first threw the murder weapon under a car before changing his mind, recovering it and throwing it into the Seine. This man wearing shorts and a cap fled to the street of Paris where he was reportedly picked up by a car driven by a woman.
The investigations have for the time being been entrusted to the police station of the commune. The rest of the investigation will depend on the resistance of the victim. If the hospitalized man survives his serious injuries, he will be heard. His statements should then shed light on the conflict between him and his aggressor. In the meantime, investigators are making every effort to identify the suspect so that he can also give them his version of the facts.
