Moselle: Three years closed for a madman holed up in his home after injuring a man

A man who took refuge on May 3 in his apartment in the town of L’Hôpital (Moselle), after injuring a person, was sentenced to three years in prison by the Sarreguemines criminal court, we learned on Wednesday from the prosecution. The man, born in 1983 and suffering from paranoid schizophrenia, was late in his treatment at the time of the events. On May 3, he stabbed a man in the back who came to bring him food, before retreating into his apartment and setting it on fire.

He had caused a gas explosion which sparked a fire in his apartment, he being unhurt, he told theAFP the mayor of the town. Tried for violence and damage to property, he was sentenced on May 15 to three years in prison as well as five years of socio-judicial monitoring, Olivier Glady, public prosecutor of Sarreguemines, told AFP, confirming information from the Républicain Lorrain.

On May 3, the Raid intervened in this small town of 5,000 inhabitants in eastern France to arrest him. The man had previously been convicted six times, including four times for acts of violence. “In July 2020, (he) disfigured with a chopper an 18-year-old young man who refused him a cigarette,” reports Le Républicain Lorrain. Experts determined that he was eligible for criminal sanction.
