Suspicions of injections during “The song of the year” in Toulon: a 20-year-old suspect presented to an examining magistrate

Placed in police custody overnight from Friday to Saturday, a 20-year-old man residing in Toulon will be brought to the Toulon prosecutor’s office during the day on Sunday.

He is “implicated by three victims including a security officer who says he was pricked with a syringe by this person”specifies the public prosecutor of Toulon, Samuel Finielz.

The second suspect arrested has been released with no charges brought against him.

Now, there are twenty people who claim to be victims of injections. All accepted the blood and urine samples, taken on the spot. Seven forensic examinations have already been carried out.

Placed in police custody overnight from Friday to Saturday, a 20-year-old man residing in Toulon will be brought to the Toulon prosecutor’s office this Sunday. The suspect was arrested during the recording of the television program “The song of the year”, broadcast on TF1. A crowd of 16,000 people gathered in the fan zone, installed on the beaches of Mourillon in Toulon.

That man “is implicated by three victims, including a security officer who says he was pricked with a syringe by this personrelates the public prosecutor of Toulon, Samuel Finielz. The agent felt unwell, without it being possible to determine whether this discomfort is linked to the absorption of a harmful substance, or not.

Known next week, the results of the toxicological examinations “will make it possible to determine it”.

Another incriminating element, against this suspect, the testimonies of “two other victims who saw this individual and identify him as carrying a syringe”in the words of the prosecutor.

These victims say “to have succeeded in preventing him from stinging them and to have been victims of violence by this same individual”.

The suspect disputes the facts

During the musical evening, the incident “resulted in crowd movements. The police services during their intervention were able to locate this person and proceed to his arrest”recounts Samuel Finielz.

From the suspect, we know that he disputes all the facts with which he is accused. He will be referred this Sunday, at the beginning of the afternoon, as part of the opening of a judicial investigation. And therefore presented to an examining magistrate, with a view to an indictment.

The prosecution requests his indictment for “violence with a weapon and with premeditation resulting in an ITT of less than eight days”for two victims, and “violence with a weapon by destination without ITT”for a third victim.

Now twenty complaints

At the Toulon police station, twenty complaints from victims are now being prepared, all of which have not yet been formalized. Twenty people say they were sting victims.

The public prosecutor of Toulon salutes “the mobilization of local forensic doctors” who performed seven forensic examinations and found “traces likely to be likened to bite marks”.

All of the victims accepted blood and urine samples. The hair samples will take place later, in about a month and a half.

The second suspect arrested on Friday evening has been released, without any charges being brought against him.
