A 31-year-old man was arrested on Sunday, June 30, at Place du Pont-Morand in Nantes (Loire-Atlantique), as part of the anti-fascist gathering organized at Place Talensac, on the evening of the legislative elections. The arrest took place around 7:30 p.m.

The police from the anti-crime squad wanted to check on this thirty-year-old with a masked face and a cap. “He immediately announced that he would not allow himself to be controlled,” indicates a police source. The police officers were punched and kicked. Two of them were injured, including one who suffered a cracked tooth. The man was taken into police custody for violence against persons holding public authority, with the aggravating circumstance of concealed face.

Broken windows

The spontaneous demonstration on Sunday evening, in the streets of the city center, experienced some tense moments with mortar fire against the police, who used tear gas grenades. Some windows were broken on the Galeries Lafayette side.
