It was 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday when a 22-year-old woman managed to call for help in Bondy (Seine-Saint-Denis). Place de la République, the first people who came to her aid found her in a state of shock, and her eyes bleeding. According to her first statements, her ex-husband was the author of the assault: he practiced a “fork” by sticking his two fingers in his eyes.
“She was discovered with damaged eyes,” confirms the Bobigny prosecutor’s office. The person responsible for this barbaric attack, a man of Albanian origin, fled. This Thursday afternoon, he was still actively wanted by the police. The exact circumstances of this domestic violence are not yet known. The young woman, originally from Kosovo and living in de Bondy, no longer lived under the same roof as her former spouse.
The young woman lost an eye
She is still hospitalized in a Parisian establishment and presented very serious injuries. The medical teams could not save one of his eyes.
The investigation was entrusted to the departmental security.
The origin of the dispute could not be clarified. Due to his condition, the victim could not be heard.
This new case of domestic violence is added to a blacklist. The latest figures given at the end of 2020 by the Ministry of the Interior and listing the facts of 2019 show that attacks are up 16%. They bring to 142,310 violence against women by their spouse or ex-spouse and to 173 deaths. The statistics for 2020 are not yet known. But this year, the Grenelle des violences conjugales emphasized that the penal protection orders pronounced by a magistrate to protect women from violent husbands had doubled.
