Young people attacked a 14-year-old girl on Tuesday April 2 as she left a school in Montpellier. The victim was treated by firefighters after losing consciousness.

A 14-year-old girl was attacked by three individuals in Montpellier, Tuesday April 2, at the Arthur Rimbaud college at the end of the day in front of the establishment. The student was hit by another 14-year-old schoolgirl, with two boys from outside the school. She suffered several punches and kicks before falling to the ground. She suffered convulsions and fell into a coma.

The Montpellier public prosecutor declared that the victim had been admitted “in the evening to the Lapeyronie University Hospital” and that “his vital prognosis is no longer in jeopardy”. The public prosecutor’s office announced that it had contacted “the ‘attack on persons’ brigade of the local judicial police service in Montpellier”. One of the suspects was arrested.

“The head teacher called me yesterday (Tuesday) to come pick up my daughter and warned me that a crowd of young people had formed at the exit,” her mother told Midi Libre. “I asked the college to keep her within the establishment until I arrived, they did not do it,” she says. According to her mother, her daughter is the victim of harassment. “Students launched a hashtag on social media to call for a rally.” According to France Bleu, which cites a police source, it was the dissemination of a photo on social networks which was the origin of a violent altercation between the two schoolgirls.

The attack provoked a reaction from the Minister of National Education, Nicole Belloubet, who declared “to have learned with emotion that a schoolgirl was violently attacked in Montpellier. I send her all my support as well as her family. light must be shed on this unbearable act. A listening cell and security teams are already on site.”
