Afghan Migrant Suspected of Raping Woman in Street in Broad Daylight

A homeless man from Afghanistan has been arrested under suspicion of raping a woman in front of her home in France last month, according to reports.

The horrifying incident unfolded at around 8 a.m. on February 27 in Villeurbanne, a commune in the metropolis of Lyon.

A 27-year-old woman was returning from a trip on the subway when she was reportedly attacked and raped by a man in front of her apartment building.

She later told authorities she believed the suspect had followed her from the metro station.

After reviewing surveillance footage, investigators identified a man who had shadowed the victim from the subway to her home.

"Thanks to the transport card he used when leaving the station, and to a telephone job, a 21-year-old Afghan national in a regular situation in France was identified," Actu 17 reports.

"He is a homeless person who is not known to the police."

The suspect was eventually tracked down and arrested on Wednesday at around 1 p.m.

"The clothes he was wearing at the time of his arrest were identical to those of the suspect on the day of the incident," a source said.

The Afghan denied any wrongdoing during a court hearing, but evidence against him has been described as "overwhelming," including a DNA match with a sample taken off the victim.
