PARIS
— The French authorities said on Monday that a teacher who claimed to
have been stabbed with scissors and a box cutter at a preschool near
Paris had fabricated the story.
A
police official in Aubervilliers confirmed that the teacher, who has
not been identified, admitted to having invented the assault at the Jean
Perrin preschool in Aubervilliers, a northern suburb of Paris.
It
“was a fake attempt, done so that he could have himself transferred” to
another job, the official said, speaking on the condition of anonymity
because he was not allowed to speak to reporters about the episode.
A
spokeswoman for the Paris prosecutor’s office, Agn├Ęs Thibault-Lecuivre,
said earlier in the day that the victim, a 45-year-old male preschool
teacher, had described the attacker as saying, “This is Daesh, this is a
warning.” Daesh is an Arabic acronym for the Islamic State, which is
also known as ISIS or ISIL.
The teacher said that the assailant was wearing a balaclava and gloves and that he then fled.
The
authorities took the teacher’s claim seriously, beginning a hunt for
the assailant as the Paris prosecutor opened a preliminary investigation
for attempted murder.
The
teacher’s wounds were not life-threatening but he was still in the
hospital, Ms. Thibault-Lecuivre said, before it was revealed that the
attack appeared to be a hoax.
Based
on information provided by the teacher, the top government official for
the Seine-St.-Denis administrative department, Philippe Galli, told
reporters that the assailant had entered the preschool around 7:10 a.m.
and had attacked the teacher in his classroom with the box cutter and a
pair of scissors that he had found on the school premises. The teacher
had said that no children or other members of staff had been present at
the time, Mr. Galli said.
Najat
Vallaud-Belkacem, the French education minister, said that the
authorities closed the preschool in response to news that there had been
an attack, but that it would reopen on Tuesday. She said that the
government would continue to bolster security in schools.
France has been under a state of emergency since coordinated attacks in and around Paris last month
left 130 dead and more than 350 wounded. The Islamic State has claimed
responsibility for the assaults, which involved several teams of gunmen
and suicide bombers.
