His cousin posts nude photos of himself on social media, he stabs him in the carotid

An alleged assassination attempt, against a backdrop of online harassment, precariousness, and family dispute. On December 18th, Younouss, a 28-year-old man, was indicted for attempted murder. He is suspected of having stabbed his cousin on December 15th in front of their migrant worker residence in the 15th arrondissement of Paris.

According to information reported by Le Parisien, Younouss would have burst into the scene in the middle of the afternoon, around 3:30 pm, and stabbed his cousin four times, including twice in the carotid, once in the temple, and once in the abdomen. The victim survived despite serious injuries and a piece of the blade removed from his body by doctors. Behind this extreme violence is the dissemination of nude photos of Younouss on social networks.

In their investigations, after the assailant was questioned that evening at the premises of the third district of the judicial police of Paris (14th arrondissement), the investigators discovered the source of this violent assault. “The victim had photos of his aggressor naked and he had circulated them on social networks. Since this episode, Younouss had been the subject of mockery,” explained a source close to the investigation to Le Parisien.

Formally identified by the surveillance camera images of the RER C, which he had taken in his escape just after the attack, Younouss was arrested upon his return to the scene on the evening of December 15th. In custody, he had first mentioned a story of Malian sorcery, which had pushed him to act. His cousin was urgently taken to Georges Pompidou hospital, where he was immediately operated on. He will follow 15 days of total incapacity for work, given his injuries.

Younouss, who is now the subject of an obligation to leave French territory (OQTF), has since been incarcerated at La Santé prison, according to our colleagues.
