Two young homeless people, aged 19 and 20 respectively, were arrested on October 27 at 11 p.m. when they had just threatened a Lyon bus driver with death.

Already known to the police, the two suspects first tried to block the vehicle to get on board, said the Sûreté du Rhône on Friday.

Seeing that they did not have masks, the driver refused to open the doors of the bus to them.

Mad with rage, the two thieves copiously insulted the woman before threatening her with death and then breaking the side window on the driver's side, say the investigators.

The police also add that one of them was already the subject of a search form for being obliged to leave the national territory.

The second, in an irregular situation, was in possession of a stolen cell phone.

They should be tried this Friday afternoon in immediate appearance.
