A pizza deliveryman was brutally beaten by a group of young males in a Paris district described as 'lawless,' according to reports.
On Saturday night, a Domino's employee named Cheikh carried over 100 euros (~$125) of pizza to an address on avenue de Verdun, a 'sensitive neighborhood' in the 10th arrondissement of the French capital.
'Sensitive' regions can alternatively be described as de facto 'no-go zones' due to large migrant populations and high crime along with reduced law enforcement, in general.
Cheikh says he rode his scooter to the address, where he was met by the customer, who said he would be paying with a card.
While Cheikh was procuring his processing machine, he was struck from behind and knocked to the ground as a mob of young males set upon him.
"Witnesses told the firefighters that there were more than seven people. These young people were between 17 and 18 years old," Cheikh told BFMTV. "It was well planned because they were the ones who ordered. And 10 minutes later, they even called back to find out where the order was."
The deliveryman says he was knocked unconscious during the assault.
He suffered severe facial injuries and is now in a neck brace.
The suspects stole the pizzas after the beating.
"Avenue de Verdun, really over there... I'm not the first person this has happened to. It seems like a lawless world there," Cheikh said.
"Sometimes we are intimidated, but we think it's because they are drunk. This has gone too far."
Military leaders have recently fired off two incendiary letters, warning the Macron government of looming "civil war" if strong measures are not taken to regain control of a society spiraling into chaos.
The lid on the research regarding the origins of the COVID virus is slowly being lifted.
