Died for nothing. Or at least for a 150 euro Nike jogging suit. This is the tragedy that has just struck a family in the Cité Verte in Sucy-en-Brie. A teenager from this working-class neighborhood of Sucy-en-Brie was stabbed to death this Friday evening in Valenton, a town located not far from there, during the delivery of this garment in the street.
According to our information, a young man, also 17 years old, living in the municipality where the transaction took place and known to the police for thefts, was arrested a little later that night. It was his mother who called for help when her son, consumed by remorse for his crime, threatened to commit suicide. During his police custody, which continued this Saturday morning in the premises of the SDPJ 94 in Créteil, he confirmed that he was the murderer.
A gang of six youths bursts in
It was after 20 p.m. when the victim, unknown to the law, went to the appointment made on the Vinted application. Is the young man worried that things will go wrong? In any case, he comes with two friends to this little garden between the blocks of buildings. But that's not enough. A group of six hooded people burst in to steal the jogging bottoms. A fight breaks out.
One of the assailants pulls out a butcher knife and stabs the victim in the femoral artery. The gang fled towards the Darius-Milhaud alley. Sucy's teenager is in a desperate state. Despite the intervention of the emergency services who gave him cardiac massage, he was pronounced dead by a doctor about an hour later.
He admits to a "big mistake"
He's not the only one to have been hit. At around 22:20 p.m., police were called to another teenager who had been stabbed in the left thigh. This young man, who lives in Villeneuve-Saint-Georges, is believed to be the victim's cousin. He was part of the group of three youths attacked. His life is not in danger.
A new twist a little later with this desperate phone call from a mother in the Poland district of Valenton. His son threatens to jump from the third floor of his building because he has done something "stupid" he tells his mother. He was arrested by the police. Inquiring about the health of the youth he stabbed, he then learns that he is dead.
On Saturday, patrols were to be organized in the area to prevent possible reprisals.
