A mother in police custody for attempted aggravated murder: she says she defended her daughter involved in a teenage argument

While her 14-year-old daughter was arguing with other teenagers, a mother decided to intervene and stabbed one of the young girls numerous times. This woman was arrested and placed in pre-trial detention. The Lyon prosecutor’s office announced that she was charged with attempted aggravated murder.

The mother and daughter were indicted

Last Saturday evening, an argument broke out between several young girls in the Tonkin district of Villeurbanne. According to our colleagues at Le Progrès, the mother of a 14-year-old teenager joined her daughter and stabbed one of the young girls with whom she had an argument several times. The lawyers of the mother and her daughter will deny this accusation, saying that the teenager was being “lynched” by the other young girls. However, one of them, barely twenty years old, was transported to the Femme Mère Enfant hospital in Bron and treated by doctors for three wounds, including one on the neck. His vital prognosis is not in jeopardy. The public prosecutor will indicate that the mother and her daughter were indicted Monday evening.

The reasons for this brawl remain unknown at this time.

The investigation will, in fact, have to determine the reasons for this dispute which ended in bloodshed. The Lyon public prosecutor’s office informed our colleagues of the opening of a judicial investigation into the counts of attempted murder of a minor aged fifteen and violence in a meeting. An investigating judge has been appointed and the investigations will have to identify the origin of the altercation and the reasons for such an outbreak of violence. But the lawyers for the mother and the young girl put forward a completely different story. For the latter, the 14-year-old teenager was attacked by a group of five girls who beat her. The mother then intervened to protect her daughter but she too was allegedly molested. The person who stabbed him fled and has not been identified.
