A stroke that could have turned into a tragedy. On Monday, September 19, 2022, a 34-year-old man attacked with an ax in post from rue Maurice-Berteaux v Franconville (Val d’Oise).

The incident took place around 2:30 p.m. According to our information, the individual went to the counter to withdraw money for the first time. The agency employee could not give him the claimed amount for an unspecified reason, which was especially annoying for people in their thirties.

The employee threatened, ransacked the facility

He then leaves the office and goes to his car parked in front of him to retrieve the axe. He returns to the agency and threatens an employee with his gun before rummaging through everything inside, especially blowing up the computers.

After police were alerted, officers were able to subdue the individual in order to proceed with his arrest without causing any regrettable injuries. The latter was taken into custody.

While employees exercised their right to withdraw from the contract, the post office was closed to carry out necessary repairs.
