Suspected ISIS Terrorist Arrested In Paris After Crushing Police Motorcyclists
A suspected ISIS terrorist was under arrest in Paris last night after crushing two police motorcyclists at high speed between his BMW and a patrol car.
The 29-year-old attacker, who is being referred to as Youssef T, has since admitted ‘I did it for ISIS,’ according to investigators as reported by The Daily Mail.
Searches at his home in Colombes and of his car uncovered ‘a letter explaining his action with possible terrorist motives’ and a knife. The suspect was taken into custody for interrogation at a high-security police station in the Paris area.
According to police sources, a man was first chased by a police motorbike unit carrying out roadside checks during the coronavirus lockdown. He abandoned his Bike and then fled in a Peugeot vehicle, leaving the police unit congregating outside a shutdown school.
It was then that the black BMW 1 Series arrived at high speed and crushed the two officers who were standing by their bikes and the patrol car.
Both officers were rushed away from the scene, with the worst injured going to the Beaujon Hospital at Clichy, where he was placed in an artificial coma.
Earlier this month, three Sudanese refugees were placed in custody in France following the first terrorist attack in Europe during the Coronavirus lockdown – raising fears that they were part of an ISIS-style cell.
One, identified as 33-year-old Abdallah Ahmed-Osman, stabbed two people to death and severely wounded seven others during a bloody rampage in the town of Romans-sur-Isère, south of Lyon.
Anti-terrorism prosecutors later confirmed that two other Sudanese refugees who were ‘close friends’ of the perpetrator had also been arrested.
Such atrocities follow a series of bombs, guns, and knife attacks carried out by Islamic State and al-Qaeda operatives in France, dating back to early 2015 according to reports by The Daily Mail.
