“I’ll cut your throat, I’m a Muslim, Allah Akbar, you don’t know who I am.”
It is in these terms that a 31-year-old Muslim threatened pedestrians on December 26th evening in Roanne, a small town near Lyon, France.
Armed with a 10-foot branch, he was arrested by the police, then interned in a psychiatric ward. A psychiatric expertise must be carried out to assess his criminal responsibility.
That evening, at 10:30 p.m., a couple and a teenager were driving home from a restaurant when they ran into the terrorist. He was running down the street armed with a branch about 10 feet long with which he struck the car. The Muslim then continued on his way, trying to hit another car with another stick.
He was finally neutralized by a mother, her teenager son who chased him on foot and the father following in his car.
He threatens to slit his victims’ throats
Beatings were exchanged and the Muslim was subdued after repeatedly threatening to slit the throats of the father and son while shouting “Allah Akbar” several times.
Threats were also made against police officers when they intervened.
When the mother asked him why he had acted in this way, he reportedly replied that he had been a psychiatrist for 15 years and was schizophrenic.
The individual was taken into police custody and then involuntarily committed to psychiatry for three days, before being released.
His criminal responsibility must be assessed by an expert. “And if he is found responsible for his actions, he will be tried in court,” said Roanne public prosecutor Abdelkrim Grini.
“If he had had a knife, it would have been the same thing,” said Abdelkrim.
