Three Romanian homeless people sleeping in the parking lot of a gas station in Lille, France, on Friday to Saturday night jumped on an armed individual trying to rob a student. Journalists at La voix du Nord say in a report on the event that this piece of information would remove many preconceptions, at least provisionally.

At about 1 a.m., the student stopped at a gas station to fill when a man came close to her, armed with a gun, in an attempt to rob her. The victim resisted and started to scream.

Waken up, the three Romanian homeless people hurried towards the aggressor, who ran away, according to French journalists, who note the attacker was arrested shortly afterward and placed in preventive arrest.
