The suspect can be seen punching the guard in the face and tackling him to the ground before repeatedly striking him in the head.
At least eight blows were delivered during the frenzy, leaving the victim apparently unconscious on the floor.
After days on the run, the suspect was arrested when officers spotted him at Sarcelles Saint-Brice station.
He was identified as a 38-year-old male from the Republic of Congo, according to police sources.
The security guard, a man of Thai origin, was left in a coma and his prognosis was not available to the public in the most recent available updates.
