René, the son of Angèle Houin, the 89-year-old retiree violently attacked at the end of August in Cannes by three teenagers, met, this Thursday, the father of one of the attackers on the set of TPMP on C8. He told her that her son was “a killer”.
Nearly three weeks after the violent attack suffered by an 89-year-old retiree, in front of her home in Cannes (Alpes-Maritimes), the victim’s son, René, faced Thursday evening on C8, Bouchaïb, the father of one of the miners who carried out the beatings.
René, explaining at first that his mother, Angèle, “is doing very badly”, suffering from the “backlash” of the violence of which she was the victim and still having to “pass examinations of the head”, affirmed to the father of one of the defendants: “Your son is a killer”.

The suspect’s father has for his part repeatedly apologized, saying “sorry”, considering that it is a “disaster”. He explained that he suffered from the actions of his son and did not know how to make up for his gesture. “He did his bullshit in a split second, I don’t know, I’m not defending him. Now he is in a children’s prison, good for him,” he said.
Violent aggression and strong reactions
As a reminder, on August 29, Angèle Houin, 89, was attacked as she was returning home after shopping. Three young people aged 14 to 15 attacked her, one hitting her violently, the second snatching her wallet and the third filming the scene.
It seems that one of the families first tried to create a false alibi to exonerate one of the suspects, while a sum of money was also offered to the lady to withdraw her complaint. The payment of a sum was however disputed by the son of the victim himself this Thursday in TPMP. The three attackers must in any case be tried on November 30 for these facts. They have, in the meantime, been placed in a closed educational center.
In response to this attack, the mayor of Cannes, David Lisnard, had written to the Minister of the Interior Gérald Darmanin to ask him to suspend the payment of social aid received by the families of the accused. Their eviction from the social housing they occupy had also been requested.
Mayor Les Républicains had also considered that the three minors should be “full litigants”, without excuse of minority.
