Perpetrators are very reckless, stab the police in the patrol car

A police officer in Cannes, southern France, is injured after being stabbed with a knife Monday, November 8, 2015.

"The perpetrator has been arrested," said French Interior Minister Gerald Darmanin.

Ummatimes - The attack in Cannes comes at a time when concerns about violent crime and elements of terrorism are among the main concerns of voters ahead of the 2022 French presidential election.

"I will go directly to the scene this morning and support the national police and the City of Cannes," Darmanin tweeted.

BFM TV, citing a police source, said the assailant opened the door of a police car parked in front of the police station and stabbed the policeman behind the wheel.

The suspect then tried to attack the second policeman in the car.

However, a third police officer who was also in the car opened fire, causing the suspect to be seriously injured.
