A 15-year-old Audois, soon to be 16, was stabbed in the back, on the sidelines of the local festival in Laroque d’Olmes (Ariège), last weekend. His attacker, already convicted for similar acts, was arrested and imprisoned.

The evening almost turned tragic in Laroque-d’Olmes, in Ariège, on the night of Saturday June 18 to Sunday June 19, 2022. A 16-year-old young man was stabbed in the back during a fight. When he was taken care of by the emergency services, his vital prognosis was engaged. But according to our information, the state of health of the victim no longer inspires concern, Wednesday June 22, 2022. She was even able to be heard by the investigators on Tuesday June 21.

He is a very young boy aged 15, almost 16, a high school student and living in Chalabre, a small Aude village where the family is very well regarded: “It’s a very calm family, people who don’t not talk about them, or else in good. You should not have only this kind of families in Chalabre”, summarizes Jean-Jacques Aulombard, the mayor of the town. The very young man, according to the testimony of one of his relatives, is particularly marked by what happened to him, and even “traumatized” by the attack he suffered.

The circumstances of the brawl remain unclear

The dispute between the relatives of the victim and the father of the attacker took place at Place de la République, a few hundred meters from Place Maurice-Thorez, located on the edge of the Touyre, and which hosted, this Saturday evening, the local festival. It was around 1:30 a.m. According to the account of the friends of the victim, and of the young man who was subsequently injured, the group was attacked by a Laroquais who lives not far from there. But the first elements of the investigation deliver a diametrically opposed version, according to which the small group where the young victim is revealed would have attacked this inhabitant of Laroque. A version confirmed by testimonies collected this Thursday, in the village.

The son of this Laroquais, witness of the scene and born in 1995, would have been taken by a fit of anger. He would have armed himself with a rather large kitchen knife, would have descended from his home and would have targeted one of the young people of the group in question. He stabbed him once in the upper left part of his back, just above the shoulder blade.

On the spot, the firefighters transferred him for a time to the Intercommunal Hospital Center of the Ariège Valleys, before the unfortunate was referred to the Toulouse-Purpan hospital.

The recognized author acknowledges the facts

Arrested on Sunday June 19 at the end of the afternoon, the alleged perpetrator of the attack was taken into custody by the Foix Research Brigade (BR), to which the criminal investigation was first referred. by the public prosecutor of Foix. During his hearing, he admitted the facts before being referred and imprisoned. He is indicted for attempted murder in a state of legal recidivism for acts punishable by ten years’ imprisonment and dating back to 2015. According to concordant sources, during the attack, he was under the surveillance of an electronic bracelet. The Fuxéen prosecutor’s office, a time in charge of the file, has divested itself in favor of its counterpart in Toulouse.

According to our information, another scuffle, of less importance, took place on the sidelines of the Laroque-d’Olmes festival this weekend. Blows would have been exchanged seriously before the Saturday night fever fell more quickly, this time causing no injuries.
