In both cases, he asks them to get on board by pointing a handgun, but the two teenagers manage to flee, ”says the gendarmerie.
One of the teenagers, accompanied by her mother, then lodged a complaint and sent a first report of the man as well as the vehicle she had recognized in the parking lot of a shop.
In possession of a pistol
The scene was repeated on Tuesday, November 10, around noon, with a third schoolgirl, in the same area.
