The suspect arrested
According to a police source at BFMTV, the alleged perpetrator was arrested after trying to flee on foot. Known to the police, he had narcotics in his possession, information confirmed by the Minister of the Interior who reacted to this event on Tuesday morning on his Twitter account.
“Every day our law enforcement officers face attempted murders while doing their job. We should all be supporting them rather than standing with the offenders,” he tweeted.
For his part, the PCF deputy from the North Fabien Roussel announced on BFMTV and RMC his desire to go there in the afternoon to “provide support” to the colleagues of the injured policeman.
