The investigation is progressing after the attack on Yuriy. This 15-year-old teenager had been taken in serious condition to the Necker-Enfants Malades hospital in Paris on the evening of January 15. As CCTV images showed, he had just been beaten up by a gang of young people on the Beaugrenelle slab, in the 15th arrondissement of the capital. Nine young people - eight minors and one adult - were placed in police custody on the morning of Thursday 28 January. Here is what we know about the survey.

The investigation is continuing to find out what happened that day, when a dozen young people attacked him.

The young people in custody come from Vanves

The Paris prosecutor's office announced that eight minors and one adult had been placed in custody "on charges of attempted murder, criminal conspiracy to commit a crime and theft in a meeting with violence ". The young people were arrested in Vanves (Hauts-de-Seine) at their parents' home, at 6 am.

CCTV images used

To find the attackers, the police notably used CCTV images from this slab, which covers a shopping center near the Seine. Some of the images have also circulated on social networks, arousing emotion and indignation. We see a dozen young people in sportswear and hooded jackets kicking and beating or sticks on a person on the ground, before abandoning him. We will know later that the young man on the ground is a schoolboy named Yuriy. One of the alleged assailants was identified via the bag he wore around his belt, according to France Televisions journalist Nathalie Perez, live from the direction of the judicial police.

The 15-year-old badly beaten on January 15 in Paris came out of a coma on Monday, his relatives say. The investigation into "attempted murder" continues. The mother of Yuriy, the 15-year-old teenager who was badly beaten on January 15 in Paris , in the 15th arrondissement, gave news of her son on Monday, January 25.

The trail of an assault committed by a gang

Open for "attempted murder in a meeting", the investigation quickly focused on the trail of an assault committed by a gang of young people from cities in western Paris. "The investigators had worked on social networks, where they had seen a gang of young people from Vanves who called for revenge against Yuriy and his friends", explains journalist Nathalie Perez in the video above. "According to the first elements of the investigation by the judicial police, Yuriy would have been the victim of a 'return match' after a teenager from Vanves was hit a few days earlier," said Le Point.

"These fights are recurrent in the 15th arrondissement. They always take place according to the same operating mode and with the same type of bladed weapons, documented by the 'Bandes' group of the police headquarters at least since 2012. Several bands are listed in this residential corner of Paris. From Vanves (92) to Balard (Paris 15th) via the Porte de Vanves (14th ) ", writes Le Point . "The operation of the Beaugrenelle gang is also closely scrutinized. Nicknamed 'RD4', it was formed around the rue des Quatre-Frères-Peignot, described as 'difficult' for several years, with drug trafficking" , adds Le Figaro .

They were taken into custody for attempted murder, criminal conspiracy to commit a crime, and robbery in groups and with violence.

According to the police, these rivalries between gangs claimed the lives of six young people in 2017 and 2018. A total of 83 clashes were recorded in 2020 in the capital, against 159 in 2016, often involving minors. The latest example dates back to last November, when an 18-year-old youngster died in the 18th arrondissement during a settling of scores between rivals from the gates of Saint-Ouen and Clignancourt. The Paris police headquarters, which has set up a gang plan monitoring unit (CSPB) since 2010, lists around fifteen in the capital.

The French students are doing badly. If we often stress the impact of the health crisis on the elderly, the main victims (in the medical sense) of the coronavirus epidemic, the youngest are also in unimaginable distress.
