At the moment, motorists are finding it difficult to refuel in France due to government fuel discounts. Enough to blow the minds of some road users. Last Wednesday, a confrontation between two motorists at a service station in Saint-Julien-en-Genevois in Haute-Savoie broke out, with one stabbing the other, France Bleu Pays de Savoie reports.
The argument took place around 4.30pm on Wednesday, October 5. The attacker, a 20-year-old man, like many other motorists in recent days, was standing in a packed queue. According to the first elements of the investigation, reported by local radio, the man would not have accepted that a car registered in Switzerland was doubling in line.
Then the tension between the two would rise, and the 20-year-old Frenchman would take a knife and stab a 33-year-old man living in Switzerland, who had walked in front of him. Her two children, who were mounted in the back of the car, witnessed the scene. The wounded, who were rushed to Geneva’s hospital center, are fortunately out of the woods, and our colleagues note.
France Bleu further mentions that Haut-Savoyard fled, but was quickly apprehended by gendarmes. He was taken into police custody and admitted to stabbing the victim at least six times.
According to Le Dauphiné Libéré, an investigation into attempted murder has been opened and handed over to the gendarmerie of Saint-Julien-en-Genevois. The suspect, who was in police custody, was produced before a magistrate on Friday before being remanded in custody.
