Off-Duty Officer Saves Boy From Mob 'Lynching' in France

An off-duty police officer rescued a teenage boy from a mob attack in the French city of Chartres last week, according to reports.

The 14-year-old victim came under siege from a group of roughly 20 assailants in what is being described as a 'lynching' by French authorities.

“On Wednesday, November 25, in Chartres, shortly after noon, an off-duty Eurelian gendarme noticed a crowd of young people in front of 35 rue de Chateaudun,” the Gendarmerie d'Eure-et-Loir explained in a social media post.

“His attention was drawn by screams. He quickly realized that one person was on the ground and was literally being lynched by a group of about twenty individuals who were punching and kicking him.”

The officer, who was dressed plain clothes, donned his 'Gendarmerie' armband and began shouting at the group, which sent them running.

He administered first aid to the boy and emergency responders quickly arrived on the scene.

A similar mob attack took place recently in Paris when a group of nearly two dozen 'Moroccan youths' hunted down a lone victim and brutally beat him on the terrace of a restaurant on Quai de la Seine in the 19th arrondissement of the French capital.

Witnesses to the disturbing event also described it as a 'lynching,' and the boy was left seriously injured.
