France: Man Shouting "Allahu Akbar" Arrested for Beheading Own Father in Parking Lot

Police arrested a Moroccan suspect who allegedly decapitated his own father and carried the head around a park in France while shouting "Allahu akbar" over the weekend, according to reports.

The horrifying incident unfolded at around 2 a.m. on Sunday morning in Saint-Priest, a commune in the culturally-enriched metropolis of Lyon.

Witnesses notified authorities they had seen a man armed with a kitchen knife chasing another man down the street, Actu 17 reports.

Arriving officers discovered the body of a headless victim lying in a parking lot and searched the area for a suspect.

In a nearby park, they found a man carrying a dismembered head in one hand and a bloody blade in the other.

The suspect yelled "Allahu akbar" and tried to stab officers during his arrest, according to police.

He was identified as Abdelghafour K., a 25-year-old Moroccan national with an extensive criminal history who legally resides in France.

The victim was determined to be the suspect's 60-year-old father. Both men lived in a home near the scene of the brutal murder.

"Both before the investigators and before the investigating judge, the defendant admitted the facts with which he is accused while providing confused explanations raising the potential of psychiatric disorders," the prosecutor explained following a hearing.

An investigation and criminal proceedings are ongoing.
