The investigation continues two months after the violent assault on police in Herblay. A man was arrested Tuesday, December 1, in the evening, in Nanterre (Hauts-de-Seine) as part of the attack that occurred in early October against two police officers in Herblay (Val-d’Oise), according to information obtained from a source close to the survey. The suspect was arrested by police from the Research and Intervention Brigade (BRI) and the Raid. Aged 30, he was placed in judicial detention following the arrest warrant issued by the investigating judge, said the prosecution.
Wednesday evening, he was indicted “counts of attempted murder of persons holding public authority and unauthorized possession of category B weapons in a meeting” and remanded in custody, according to the public prosecutor of Pontoise.
Members of the Cergy-Pontoise judicial police, the two police officers, aged 30 and 45, had been “taken by surprise” while they “were under surveillance in an industrial zone in Herblay”, had specified at the time the parquet floor of Pontoise. They were then extracted from their vehicle and attacked by three men. After beating them on the ground, the attackers stole their service weapons and opened fire on them several times, seriously injuring them.
