On Monday 13 August, an Afghan asylum seeker stabbed four people in Perigueux. One is in serious condition, French newspaper Le Figaro reports.
A 19-year-old Afghan asylum seeker was bothering a group of girls in Perigueux’s Victor Hugo street, Monday night. Two men attempted to defend the girls from the heavily drunk migrant.
The Afghan went searching for a knife in the house of his cousin, also an asylum seeker, and stabbed the two men in the head and neck.
He then stabbed his neighbours, two brothers, aged 64 and 68, before being quickly arrested after the second attack. The 64-year-old man is “seriously wounded”, according to Le Figaro’s sources.
The suspect arrived in France in 2016 according to Périgueux’s public prosecutor’s office.
