According to the prosecutors, he exchanged 33 text messages with his wife ahead of the attacks, all of which were of a religious character.
Following, the incident that left 5 people dead including the attacker, French media reported that the suspected perpetrator was a recent convert to Islam, adding that he came in sight of the law enforcement agencies after the 2015 Charlie Hebdo attack.

Following the attack, police searched the home of the suspected perpetrator, while taking his wife in custody.
