in the columns of The teama local resident who witnessed the fight between the former rugby player and Loïk Le Priol gives a shocking testimony.

After fleeing to Hungary, Loïk Le Priol sleeps behind bars in Paris. The 27 year old man ex-commando of the navy and figure of the far-right movement, is suspected of having opened fire on former Argentine rugby player Federico Martin Aramburu, who was shot dead after an altercation in a bar in Saint-Germain-des-Près on March 19. A little more than fifteen days after the events, the testimony of a local resident who attended the initial fight published this Wednesday by The team sheds a harsh light on the prime suspect’s determination and violence.

Awakened by screams and insults

«This morning, I am sleeping. Despite the double glazing, I wake up to screams and insults. My first instinct is to go see. It is approximately 5:55 am, which has been corroborated by video surveillance images (…) Despite the time, there are many people at the windows, which attests to the violence of the scene. It’s so violent, determined, and the man on the ground doesn’t react as much, that for a split second I tell myself that he must have screwed up and that he “accepts” being beaten up “says, in the sports newspaper, the witness, marked by “the determination of one of the boys“, Loïk Le Priol in this case.

“Hegarty scared them too bad. It’s a closet!”

«He tries to get back in (after being separated from his victim by bar staff), continues yelling insults, but is stopped by someone I haven’t identified. I’m sure if he could have come back, he would have. I think if he could have killed it with his fists, he would have killed it with his fists. He yelled “Your mother the whore!”», continues the local resident according to whom Aramburu «they just fucked him up and he doesn’t even try to hit back (…) He didn’t want to fight, of course not». «It is very subjective, but now that I know the profile of the protagonists, I think they went after Aramburu because (Shaun) Hegarty (the friend of the Argentine who accompanied him) scared them too much. He is a closet!»

Listened to for long hours at the scene of the crime by the investigators, the neighbor of the place, who left his home after hearing the shots, wanted to testify in The team car “nobody talks about this fight, it was short but super violent.” In action, he saw Le Priol trytake something out of your pocket several times! I wanted to scream, I didn’t. I told myself “they are going to take me for a psychopath”. I told myself at worst it’s a knife». «Fights, I have seen some, but this one is rare, it is the first time that I have the feeling that it could go further, add to neighbor. He (the alleged attacker) seemed so determined. No one seemed able to calm him down.»
