The images, filmed from an antenna of the French immigration and integration office, in Montrouge, in the Hauts-de-Seine, are impressive: a man dressed in a yellow vest and a French flag , armed with two long, thin knives, paces in front of the entrance to the building, then calls out a police car.
When the officials come out, he brandishes his weapons, while keeping a safe distance.
He was finally arrested a few moments later, subdued following a taser shot.
If the scene went viral this Friday on social networks, it actually took place on Wednesday morning, around 11:20 a.m.
According to the first elements of the investigation, this 26-year-old Bangladeshi, in an irregular situation, had been refused accommodation by the same office a little earlier.
According to a judicial source, he is currently being tried in immediate appearance for "threat against a person holding public authority", "possession of narcotics" and "illegal carrying of a weapon".
In custody, the man, who was the subject of a psychiatric examination, would have said he wanted to harm himself.
