The night from Saturday to Sunday was long and hectic by the lake. Many drunken youths caused several disturbances, including assault and theft.
“The atmosphere was electric at the end of the night. A man has been assaulted. ” Nearly a thousand young people were gathered – without necessarily being all together – in the English Garden, on the night from Saturday to Sunday. Present to drink more than to admire the flower clock, the revelers made a lot of noise. Thefts have also been committed. “We have several requisitions that evening,” said police spokesperson Alexandre Brahier. People called us about noise, thefts. A major assault was committed by two young people who fled. ” Taken to HUG, the victim has not yet been identified.
The police practiced “a maximum of visible presence. The situation is different than with the Plaine de Plainpalais at the beginning of summer, specifies Alexandre Brahier. We found trash in the early morning but the atmosphere was less aggressive. The English Garden must not become a lawless area. ”
