Their vehicle was forced to exit the A1 motorway, frequently targeted by robbers, to park near a service station. There, the two thugs made off with the personal belongings of the two victims before fleeing.
It is a turning to the less spectacular whose victims were two sisters-in-sixty-years-originating in Qatar. On Monday evening, the two women, the passengers of a car brand Bentley, as well as their driver, leave the le Bourget airport, north of Paris, where they landed at around 21 hours. Committed on the A1 motorway, the car is suddenly taken by another vehicle. The two men inside force then the Bentley to leave the motorway to go park near a service station.
Hooded, thugs, sprinkle the two tourists and their driver in tear gas before you seize all the belongings stored in the trunk: “jewelry, clothing, baggage, says a police source, for an injury of at least five million euros.” The LCI, which has revealed the information, informs that the driver has filed a complaint. The Brigade for the repression of banditry of the judicial police in paris should resume the investigation. The robbers, them, have still not been found.
This turning comes to be added to an already long list of similar facts, on the axis linking Paris to the airports in the north of the capital (Roissy and Le Bourget). In April 2015, a German collector of jewelry, had been the victim of a carjacking as she left the airport of Roissy in the direction of Paris. While his taxi was stuck in a traffic jam at Saint-Denis, three men had broken the rear window before ripping the bag of the passenger. The amount of the loss had been estimated at 5 million euros.
A year earlier, in August 2014, the car of a saudi prince who was heading towards le Bourget airport had been attacked by unknown gunmen near the door of the Chapel, in Paris. Amount of loot: 250,000 euros. The last turning spectacular dates in the month of October. At the time, the CEO of Gifi, Philippe Ginestet, had been the victim of an attack while his vehicle was about to reach the A1 motorway. Three people wearing balaclavas had rammed his car through the back before stealing the luggage of the couple. Inside, watches, and jewelry of a total value estimated at 100,000 euros.
