Attacks on French police led to at least fifteen arrests during three separate incidents this week, according to reports.
Four officers are recovering from injuries sustained during ambushes by mobs armed with projectiles and blunt objects.
In Vandeuvre-lès-Nancy, two cops attempting to catch a reckless dirt bike rider engaged in a 'wild rodeo' in the streets were 'violently assaulted' by around 20 youths as the suspect fled on foot.
One of the officers was reportedly saved from life-threatening injuries by his helmet after sustaining repeated blows to the head.
Seven suspects, including six minors, were arrested.
A similar attack unfolded this week in Bagneux as roughly 30 people intervened in the apprehension of two men riding a scooter without a license plate.
One officer attempting to catch the passenger on foot was confronted by dozens of assailants, some armed with iron bars.
"Surrounded, he was severely beaten," Actu17 reports. "Faced with this situation, his colleague fired two shots in the air to ward off the attackers, then two more as they returned to the charge."
The injured officer was rushed to hospital and treated for severe injuries to his face and head.
Four suspects were arrested.
In Val-d'Oise, the Sarcelles police station was targeted by young men shooting fireworks and explosives.
Four suspects, aged 15 to 20-years-old, were arrested.
