Security guard beaten and left injured for hours after savage attack …

A security guard was savagely beaten and left lying seriously injured for hours after a brutal attack at a Brierley Hill factory.

The guard, aged 73, was attacked after he challenged a man found near the factory office yesterday afternoon. The attack happened at Stoke Forgings, a steel components manufacturing plant, based off Vine Street, at around 1pm. Police say the guard was hit numerous times, leaving him with serious head injuries. He was only discovered by a colleague starting work later at around 7pm. He remains in a critical condition in hospital today. The factory unit has been sealed off by officers while forensic inquiries take place. Detective Inspector Colin Mattinson from Force CID said: The security guard is currently detained in a critical condition in hospital. “This was a sustained and violent attack on an elderly man. “We believe he challenged a man found inside the premises which led to the unprovoked attack taking place.

Enquiries are continuing and we are studying CCTV and carrying our forensic investigations at the scene. “We are still trying to establish what the man was doing inside the premises and what, if anything was stolen. I would ask anyone who saw anything in the Vine Street area yesterday or anyone who has knowledge of this attack to call us as soon as possible on 101 or call Crimestoppers confidentially on 0800 555 111.

Patrols have been stepped up in the area after the attack.

Airport shooting rekindles security debate ahead of French election

PARIS Police on Sunday questioned relatives of a man shot dead by soldiers at a Paris airport as they sought clues about why he tried to seize an assault rifle in an incident that has pushed security to the top of France’s election campaign.

Paris prosecutor Francois Molins said late on Saturday that the man, named as 39-year-old Ziyed Ben Belgacem, had shouted he was there to “die for Allah” when he tried to seize the gun from a woman air force member on patrol at Orly airport.

After throwing down a bag containing a can of petrol and putting an air pistol to the head of the soldier, he was shot three times by her colleagues.

More than 230 people have died in France in the past two years at the hands of attackers allied to the militant Islamist group Islamic State . These include coordinated bombings and shootings in November 2015 in Paris when 130 people were killed and scores injured.

With the country in the throes of a highly-charged election campaign before a two-round presidential election in April and May, the attacks fueled the political debate about security.

Belgacem, who had been in and out of prison for theft and drug offences according to judicial sources, was already on the authorities’ radar . They said he became a radicalized Muslim when he served a prison term several years ago for drug-trafficking.

He had been reporting regularly to police under the terms of a provisional release from custody for theft and he did not have the right to leave the country.

Several hours earlier before he was killed, Belgacem had shot and wounded a police officer with his air pistol after a routine traffic stop north of Paris before fleeing, officials said.

Later he entered a bar in Vitry-sur-Seine on the other side of Paris and opened fire with his air gun without hitting anyone . He also stole a car before arriving at the airport.

“I SCREWED UP”

Belgacem’s father, who was initially detained by police but then released, denied his son had been involved in terrorism.

“My son has never been a terrorist . He has never prayed: he drinks . And, under the influence of alcohol and cannabis, this is what happens,” the father, whose name was not given, told Europe 1.

He said he had received a phone call from his son in which Belgacem referred to shooting the police officer, saying: “I ask your forgiveness . I screwed up with a policeman.”

Police said they were questioning a brother and cousin of Belgacem and an autopsy on the dead man would be carried out .

Molins said on Saturday they would be examining his telephone to establish with whom he had been in contact.

Belgacem was born in Paris, according to the prosecutor .

French media said his family was of Tunisian origin.

Presidential candidates responded swiftly to the incident.

Conservative Francois Fillon said that France was in a “situation of virtual civil war” and spoke out against a proposal to lift a state of emergency in place since the November 2015 attacks.

Far-right candidate Marine Le Pen, running on an anti-immigration, anti-EU ticket, said the Orly attacker could have caused a “massacre”.

“Our government is overwhelmed, stunned, paralyzed like a rabbit in the headlights,” she told an election rally.

Hero security guard saves colleagues’ lives as he shoots ‘drugged-up’ robber in terrifying bank raid

A security guard is being hailed a hero for saving his colleagues’ lives after shooting1 a ‘drugged-up’ bank robber.

Brian Harrison will not face criminal charges after firing two shots and fatally injuring the masked man.

The incident occurred on January 20 at the Alpine Bank2 in Rockford, Illinois.

Police say 34-year-old Laurence Turner, from Rockford, tried to rob the bank3 on Friday afternoon. He is said to have fired a shot at the ceiling.

No employees were injured during the incident and no customers inside the bank were hurt.

Authorities believe Turner may have been involved in similar robberies in the Rockford area of the past few months.

Winnebago County State’s Attorney Joe Bruscato said: “There is no doubt in my mind that the actions of Brian Harrison saved the lives of those that were employees in the Alpine Bank location on that date and saved his own life.”
