Police officers attacked in Cannes: the suspect indicted for “attempted assassination”

Police officers attacked in Cannes: the suspect indicted for "attempted assassination"

The man suspected of having attacked a crew of police officers with a knife on Monday, November 8 in Cannes was indicted for “attempted murder of police officers”. This Friday, November 12, the Grasse public prosecutor’s office also announced his placement in pre-trial detention.

The Algerian national suspected of the attack was also indicted for “violence resulting in a total interruption of work of less than 8 days with premeditation, weapon and on police officials”.

Earlier in the day, the public prosecutor of Grasse, Damien Savarzeix, announced the opening of a judicial investigation.

The terrorist track not retained

The man, a 37-year-old Algerian living in Cannes and in possession of an Italian residence permit, had stabbed two of the four police officers last Monday in a police vehicle in front of the Cannes police station. No injuries were to be deplored because the police were protected by their bulletproof vests.

Yesterday, the prosecutor also confirmed that the National Anti-Terrorist Prosecutor’s Office (PNAT) “did not retain its jurisdiction” and that the Grasse prosecutor’s office therefore remains in charge of the case.
