A group of students attacked by a knife-wielding illegal alien used defensive tactics to neutralize the suspect before French police arrived to arrest him, according to reports.
The incident unfolded in Lyon at around midnight on Tuesday.
Three young people were walking along a street in the city when a man began hurling glass bottles at them.
The suspect, who was reportedly intoxicated at the time, approached the trio and threatened them with a knife.
One of the young people pulled a canister of pepper spray and discharged it at the migrant, rendering him incapacitated and unable to leave the scene.
Police arrived and took the suspect into custody and the victims filed a formal complaint against him.
Authorities determined the man was in the country illegally, 20 Minutes reports.
He was immediately tried in court the next day.
