On May 16, 2024, the national police made a series of arrests. Eight minors were arrested and presented to the prosecution. “They will be judged quickly in a guilty hearing, probably before the summer,” a Source told 78-.

The origin of this operation has its Source in a violent fight which took place last Thursday, April 25, near the stadium. In the middle of the afternoon, several individuals clashed with knives, sticks and iron bars. One, aged 17, was injured in the head.

Present “by chance”

Present with their children during these events, parents from the neighborhood decided to launch a petition to get the town hall to react as quickly as possible. Everyone was outraged by the situation. “This has to stop. We didn’t come to live in Versailles for that! »

THE commissioner of Versailles, Bernard Le Hir, pledged to quickly put an end to this outbreak of violence. “A strong blow was delivered with these arrests,” he summarized.

The local judicial police department therefore went to look for eight young people in neighboring towns, including one who had already been arrested on April 25. In police custody, some denied their participation in the various fights while others claimed to have been present, but ” by chance. » They revealed the reason for such violence.
