A security officer was stabbed by an African 'youth' when he tried to intervene in an armed robbery on a platform in the Paris metro, according to reports.
The incident unfolded at around 7 p.m. on Wednesday evening in the French capital.
Three off-duty GPSR officers from the Autonomous Parisian Transportation Administration (RATP) were heading home after a training session when they observed a suspect armed with a large blade ambush a young woman in an attempt to steal her purse.
The trio quickly intervened and the assailant managed to escape.
However, the suspect followed the men on their journey and launched another attack on a platform at the Porte de Bagnolet station.
“The protagonist pulled out a bladed weapon with a 15 to 20 cm blade and stabbed one of the officers in the thigh," a police source told Le Figaro.
Police arrived on the scene and arrested the attacker, who claimed to be a minor from the North African country of Algeria.
The suspect was not carrying any identification and may be in the country illegally.
The wounded officer was taken to a local hospital for medical treatment.
