(Belga) A 29-year-old man was taken into police custody on Saturday suspected of having killed his wife and their two-year-old daughter with several stab wounds in Aubervilliers, where his sister broke out of windows to escape him, has learned AFP from a police source and from the Bobigny prosecutor’s office.

The respondent’s 20-year-old sister was also stabbed and jumped out of the window of the apartment, located on the second floor of the apartment building, to escape her brother. “The latter was operated. Her prognosis no longer appears to be in jeopardy,” said the prosecutor. In addition to the “family context”, the circumstances of the tragedy are still unclear for the time being, the prosecution told AFP in the morning. A knife was found under the body of one of the victims. The suspect fled by car shortly after the incident, before crashing into a wall. Having suffered fractures to his hand, to both ankles and a pneumo-thorax, he remained hospitalized on Saturday evening, according to the press release.
