Chilling video footage caught a Syrian refugee repeatedly stabbing screaming adults and kids in a French playground Thursday — including at least one toddler in a stroller.
A 90-second clip shared online shows the man repeatedly running at people in the picturesque Alpine town of Annecy, injuring at least six people, including four kids under age 5 left fighting for their lives.
Police later blamed a 31-year-old Syrian national with legal refugee status in France for the attack that President Emmanuel Macron called “an act of absolute cowardice.”
The footage starts with the black-clad suspect rushing out of the play area of Le Paquiet Park as heart-wrenching screams fill the air.
“Jesus Christ!” a male voice yells in English, as the bearded suspect — in shorts and a blue headscarf — seems to calmly play with a chain around his neck while brandishing his knife.
