A very qualified man known to justice for numerous offenses and violent crimes was arrested by the police in Toulouse, Thursday, January 27. This 32-year-old individual had escaped in the morning from the psychiatric emergency room of the Purpan hospital.
A heavy criminal record
Born in 1989, Abdallah B. has been known to the police since he was young and has been convicted more than ten times. At 22, he had already fueled the judicial chronicle by being convicted five times for acts of violence, home invasion, possession of narcotics, robbery with a weapon and sexual assault. In 2011, before the court of Albi, he had to answer for a case of thefts in meeting and in recidivism. A few months earlier in the Tarn, he had stolen a 4×4 whose engine was running in front of a store, escaping the police chased after him, hitting a motorist, before going to rob a villa with an accomplice. Sentenced to 3 years in prison, including 18 months suspended, he had severely insulted the Court at the time of the verdict.
In prison, he had run into trouble with other inmates. A case of settling scores between prisoners had led him to be sentenced again to one year in prison in 2012.
Three students knocked down in Blagnac
Abdallah B. saw his name exposed nationally when in November 2017 he drove a Clio into a group of students in Blagnac. This assassination attempt took place in front of the IGS campus of this city in the western suburbs of Toulouse while the young people were crossing a pedestrian crossing. Quickly arrested after the events in the Andromeda district, where he was residing at the time, Abdallah B. had admitted having deliberately rushed into the victims.
Contrary to what he had then declared to the police, he was not on S.
Heavy psychiatric history
The man is known for serious psychiatric disorders. During his police custody in November 2017 for the events in Blagnac, he had notably explained to the police “having heard voices” urging him “to hurt someone”.
Imprisoned in pre-trial detention, he had violently assaulted a supervisor of the Beausoleil remand center in Montauban. Judged in July 2018 for this violence, he had been found criminally irresponsible. Diagnosed psychotic with paranoid schizophrenia and considered violent, incurable and dangerous, the abolition of discernment had been pronounced by the psychiatrist.
He escaped from Purpan
Abdallah B. treated was in the psychiatry unit of the Purpan hospital, as part of a treatment by decision of a representative of the State (SDRE), from which he escaped this Friday January 27 in the morning after activating the fire-fighting system. Located in the Carmes district of Toulouse in the afternoon, he was arrested without violence by police officers from the Toulouse Anti-Crime Squad, as he was preparing to withdraw money from the Caisse d ‘Saving.
