A 27-year-old Moroccan man was arrested and taken into police custody after a knife attack which left four people injured in the Lyon metro on Sunday afternoon. An investigation was opened for “attempted intentional homicide”, said prosecutor Thierry Dran in a brief press release and at this stage, “there is no element” to support terrorist motivation, according to a police Source. “At this time, the report shows 4 victims including none have their vital prognosis compromised: two were rescued in absolute emergency, a third person is in relative emergency and a fourth was slightly injured,” said a press release from the Auvergne-Rhône Alpes prefecture. “Several witnesses, shocked, were also taken care of by a psychological support unit,” according to the same Source. “The suspect, of Moroccan nationality and aged 27, is unknown in the files. He was the subject of several hospitalizations due to psychiatric problems”, according to the prefecture. He was placed in police custody, according to the public prosecutor of Lyon who entrusted the investigations to the DIPN of Lyon. Two of the injured were hit in the abdomen and a third in the arm, according to a police Source. Two had been taken care of in the metro in a state of absolute emergency, according to the firefighters who intervened after the attack. The Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes prefecture initially reported three injured. The facts occurred around 2:40 p.m. in line B of the metro which serves the Part-Dieu station, at Place Jean-Jaurès, in the 7th arrondissement. The metro reopened after 6:00 p.m., noted an AFP journalist on site.”The City of Lyon condemns this particularly serious act”, declared on X the deputy town hall responsible for security, Mohamed Chihi. “The nightmare continues”, reacted on X Nicolas Dupont-Aignan , referring to the “victims of the incompetence of our leaders”. The prefect of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region and prefect of the Rhône Fabienne Buccio affirmed her “support” for the victims and their loved ones. She also thanked the “staff of the interdepartmental management of the national police who arrested the suspect very quickly” while welcoming the intervention of the firefighters and the SAMU.bur-mlb/sof/pta
