Man shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ arrested after attacking passers-by in Toulouse France – media

Three injured police were cared for by firefighters.

A former psychiatric patient viciously punched four passers-by then attacked three police officers while screaming Allahu Akbar in Toulouse today.

He continued to shout Allahu Akbar - Arabic for God is Great - as he was wrestled to the ground before bursting into tears. He first caught my son and then beat my daughter.

The attacker was not carrying any weapons but two victims were taken to hospital with minor injuries.

According to the report, the perpetrator is well-known to authorities and was released from a psychiatric hospital in April of this year.

The officers who detained the man acted "professionally and coolly" in a "delicate situation", police told local media.

Passersby on Avenue Frederic-Estebe quickly alerted police, according to the French 'La Depeche,' which said the 42-year-old unarmed attacker began beating shoppers at around 4 pm.
