About 40 people attacked the police station on Saturday night with fireworks and iron bars. Champigny sur Marne, east of Paris, in which five police cars and a few windows were damaged, but there were no victims to mourn, local media reported today to Efe.

The newspaper ‘Le Parisien’ has specified today that a person has already been arrested for the attack, which took place shortly before midnight. The newspaper indicates that two officers were smoking a cigarette outside when the attackers approached. The two policemen took cover in time and the group tried unsuccessfully to enter the building.

The spectacular images disseminated on social networks show that numerous fireworks were launched against that police station, outside of which several garbage containers were also set on fire.

“Fortunately there have been no injuries. (…) Full support to our policemen, who do a difficult job,” said on Twitter the French Minister of the Interior, Gérald Darmanin, who asked the Police Prefecture for the “greater firmness” against what happened.

Attacks in the past

The mayor of that town of about 10,000 inhabitants, Laurent Jeanne, noted in ‘Le Parisien’ that the motive for the attack is unclear. In his opinion, it may have been caused by a recent motorcycle accident for which the police are blamed, although his responsibility has not been proven.

That police station had already been the target of attacks in the past: in April of this year there were also mortars against it and in 2018 some 30 people also threw various projectiles at the building, such as Molotov cocktails or fireworks.
