Pro-migrant protesters robbed of gold necklace by migrants after attending protest
Last Saturday, a little after 4:00 pm, a local business owner, on his motorcycle with his 12 year old son, saw a group of 3 male teens running after 2 women, in the Jeu de Pomme’s Boulevard.
"I heard women’s screams, then I saw 2 ladies of 50 to 60 year old running in a building hall, running from 3 teens. The trio escaped from the building after having stolen a gold necklace from one of the victims" he told police.
Then the man, who didn’t want his name or picture published by the police, decided to got after them.
"I had my son stay next to the 2 women to reassure them and then I went after the 3 individuals who were running. 2 local policemen, who were patrolling the streets, witnessed the chase and intervened just when I caught and stopped 2 of the robbers", he added.
While the local police handcuffed the 2 teens, this "hero", as he was called by the police after the incident, went after the 3rd attacker, to accomplish yet another act of bravery.
"I cornered him in the Alexandre Cabanel street… I blocked him with my motorcycle’s tire, I jumped on him, I did a arm lock to him and made him spit out the gold necklace that he just hid in his mouth" he said.
"Then I brought him to the local cops still present on the scene… before heading to the Marceau street, where my son was reassuring the 2 women, whom I gave back the necklace. They thanked me very warmly. I just told them that I’ve accomplished my citizen’s duty, that I was proud to have shown civism just under my 12 year old kid’s eyes", he finished.
What's ironic to this, fortunately happily ended story is, that the 2 victims were just coming back from a rally held in favour of the Aquarius migrants when they met their assaulters, 3 minor migrants, aged between 13 and 15-years-old.
