The scene took place around 5 p.m., rue Edgar Degas.
According to a police source, the two bikers were checking a man riding a scooter.

A man arrested
One of the police officers, injured in the shoulder, was prescribed seven days of total interruption of work (ITT), specifies the public prosecutor's office of Bobigny which opened an investigation for "violence on person depositary of the public authority ".
The second, who suffers from pain in the ribs, must go to the medico-judicial unit today.
A 20-year-old man was arrested, said the prosecution without giving more details.
The investigations, entrusted to the Aulnay-sous-Bois police station, are nevertheless continuing.
