A 49-year-old man died on Saturday after being beaten up in the street for unknown reasons in broad daylight in the Rennes metropolitan area, the prosecution said on Sunday.
These “acts of murderous violence” took place Wednesday, July 21, around 1 pm in Saint-Jacques-de-la-Lande, said Rennes prosecutor Philippe Astruc, confirming information from the regional daily Ouest-France. “The victim, born in Rennes in 1972, died on Saturday,” he added. “The motive for the clash has not yet been determined. ”
An autopsy was due to take place on Monday, and the investigation was entrusted to the Rennes security police.
“Of course everything will be done to help the perpetrators of these facts to identify, challenge and punish the serious facts”, adds the magistrate.
