Tuesday July 20, around 11:30 p.m., the police were called by people complaining of fireworks fired in the Pontanézen district, in Brest. On the spot, moving towards a group of individuals, the police were targeted by fireworks mortars. There were no injuries. To secure the scene by staying at a distance, they took up the boulevard de l’Europe. But, very quickly, they were joined by individuals who paved their vehicles. Later that night, a car was set on fire in rue Cézanne, as well as garbage cans, placed in the middle of the street, to prevent vehicles from passing.
Sixteen cars burned in a week
Already on the night of July 13 to 14, twelve vehicles had gone up in smoke at Bellevue and Kerangoff. There too, the police and firefighters had been targeted. A 35-year-old man was arrested. But released since. The next day is two vehicles that had been set on fire in the district of Pontanézen, without further incidents this time. Earlier this week, a car also burned down in the city center. This brings to 16 the number of burned cars that we have identified in a week. Maybe more, but the authorities are not very talkative on the subject.
