The attack was extremely violent. The 15-year-old teenager who was violently attacked on Thursday, April 4, not far from his school located in Viry-Châtillon (Essonne), died as a result of his injuries on Friday, April 5, announced the Évry prosecutor’s office. If the young man’s attackers, three or four in number, managed to flee, the Évry prosecutor’s office announced that five people were arrested and placed in police custody. This concerns a 17-year-old minor, arrested late Friday afternoon, as well as a 15-year-old girl, two 17-year-old teenagers and a 20-year-old adult, arrested at the beginning of evening. An investigation to shed light on the causes of this terrible tragedy has been opened and entrusted to the Essonne judicial police. Thursday evening, the prefect of Essonne Frédérique Camilleri indicated on BFMTV that “the motive is not clear at all”. And added: “Nothing says it’s an inter-neighborhood brawl.”

The “massacred” teenager

The drama unfolded on Thursday, while the young schoolboy was returning home after a music lesson at the Sablons college in Viry-Châtillon. It was around 4 p.m. when several hooded people brutally attacked him near his school. “He was attacked between two stairwells by three or four people who beat him, who massacred him,” explained to BFMTV Jean-Marie Vilain, the mayor of the city, shocked by this attack. “These people are savages. We can’t say anything else: they left him between life and death,” he continued.

While the investigation is just beginning, a source close to the case told our colleagues that the victim was not known to the police. The surveillance cameras present on the premises will, for their part, be studied and a neighborhood survey carried out. On In order to support those in need, Nicole Belloubet announced that a psychological unit has been set up at the college. It must “allow all those who need to express their pain” to be able to do so, and will continue “despite the school holidays” explained François Durovray, the president of the Essonne departmental council, still on BFMTV.
