Friday, November 12, 2021, a young man with intellectual disabilities and his mother were violently assaulted in Lyon. Four individuals are involved.
The account of the facts is cold in the back. Friday, November 12, 2021, a young man of 25, mentally handicapped and his mother were driving around the Part-Dieu station, in Lyon. Mother and son were suddenly taken to task and violently assaulted by four people. They were badly beaten. The young man was the first to bear the brunt of the gang’s violence. His mother tried to intervene, taking the blows from her son’s attackers, then she was thrown to the ground.
the Progress reveals that one of the individuals was arrested and taken into custody. The latter would then have recognized the facts. Investigators are trying to find the causes of this act of violence. Le Progrès speaks of a sidelong look that would have displeased the aggressors. Three individuals are still wanted by the police.
The Part-Dieu district already cited for acts of violence
This attack is sadly reminiscent of that of Marin, also attacked in the Part-Dieu district in Lyon. On November 11, 2016, the student was brutally assaulted after trying to defend a couple in front of Part-Dieu train station. His attackers hit him with crutches. He had been left for dead. Five years later, Marin continues his long recovery. He tries to move forward even though he doesn’t forget the horror he faced. “I will never be able to forget the results of this gratuitous violence, stupidity and human wickedness”, He said on Facebook on November 11, 2021. A very sad anniversary.
