He even threatened the police with an iron bar. A police officer had to use tear gas to try to subdue him. The suspect resisted and managed to escape. This was after injuring two police officers. Shortly afterwards, a bus on which he was riding was intercepted in D’Epinay> Allan Lagarde was arrested.

This policeman injured himself in the pelvis area.

Allan Lagarde went over the roof of another house and ended up on the ground. Three police officers standing guard at the location attempted to arrest him. The suspect armed himself with an iron bar and began to threaten them. One of the officers had no choice but to pull out a can of tear gas and spray it in his direction. However, this did not stop the suspect, he struggled with them before fleeing into a bush. A chase ensued, but Allan Lagarde managed to escape.
