Hectic chase in the center of Geneva on Friday. Two individuals on two-wheelers, suspected of an attempted “Neapolitan-style” theft, were arrested after giving the police a hard time and almost knocking down pedestrians, in particular.

It all started around 6 p.m. on the Right Bank, at Chemin de Fort-Barreau, at Les Grottes, indicates Alexandre Brahier, spokesperson for the cantonal police. The duo tried to snatch the luxury watch from a motorist, who was sitting in his vehicle. Spotted by the police video surveillance center, the two men separated, one of them taking another two-wheeler. They then headed towards the city center. “There, we tried to arrest them, but they fled,” reports the communicator.

Chased by several patrols, the two individuals committed numerous traffic offenses and endangered pedestrians and other road users. A reader recounts having “almost been run over at more than 120 km/h” by one of them, in the Eaux-Vives district, on the Left Bank. “Given the risks they were taking, we had to pursue them from a distance,” explains Alexandre Brahier. Finally, the two drivers swerved, one at rue des Photographes and the other at rue de la Scie. The individuals, Italian nationals born in 1986 and 1989, were then arrested. An investigation is being carried out by the Banditry Suppression Brigade.
