Paris : robbers attack the galeries Lafayette department store with hammers

"It's an attack, very rare," says a police source in Figaro. Friday night, around 23.30, four individuals landed at the Galeries Lafayette, boulevard Haussmann, in Paris. Equipped with hammers, they break shop windows and steal many luxury products, including watches. The prejudice of this armed robbery has not yet been determined. "They left here by car and are still at large," says-t-on. According to BFMTV, two security guards were slightly injured during the burglary.


A link with the final of the CAN ?

The police source contacted by Le Figaro does not establish a link between this burglary and the misbehaviour of some supporters that took place in the margin of the final of the Africa Cup of Nations between Algeria and Senegal. The burglary took place while the festivities in the capital had only just started. An investigation by the chief of flight organised has been opened by the prosecutor's office in Paris and entrusted to the brigade for the repression of banditry.
