Savigny-sur-Orge (Essonne): restless night for the blues


Wednesday, May 27 2015 Agitated night in the sensitive neighbourhood of Grand-Vaux in Savigny-sur-Orge. Tuesday night, up until 1am, the security forces intervened to restore calm. Everything began around 17 hours when police conduct a security operation including in the common areas.

Their presence seems to disturb. One officer is attacked by two young people. He is wounded in the physical altercation. After the arson of a privately owned vehicle and eight garbage containers. Firefighters are forced to intervene. But in turn, they become the target of stone-throwing. One of them lands on the windshield of a fire engine. During the evening, two minors from the estate were detained. This Wednesday late afternoon, they were still in custody.

The Alliance Police Nationale union congratulated “the professionalism” of the police, denounced in a statement “the feeling of impunity shown by these delinquents who do not hesitate to make these neighbourhoods their territory lashing out in cowardly and physical attacks on the police.” And to demand a strong response from justice and police reinforcement on the department “hard hit by these regular scenes of urban violence”.

On Wednesday evening, in a tense climate, firefighters again intervened to extinguish a fire of burning rubbish.
