Paris: a sixty-year-old who was attacked says he was called “infidel”.

An investigation has been opened for deliberate violence committed for religious reasons.
He had been Christmas shopping. He was leaving the subway at Alesia station (14th district) and was quietly walking towards Maine Avenue (14th district), holding in his arms a package wrapped in very Christmassy paper. The events took place on Wednesday at 6:20 pm.
A stranger approached and pushed and slapped him, causing his glasses to fall to the ground. The assailant allegedly said to him, before turning around and walking away: “Behold what we do to infidels.”
The sixty-year-old, shocked, went up Maine Avenue towards the 14th district police station in order to file a complaint. An investigation was initiated for deliberate violence committed for religious reasons.
