An illegal migrant from Africa was arrested following a brutal attack and robbery of an elderly woman who was with her young grandchild in France last week, according to reports.
The disturbing incident unfolded on Thursday afternoon in Longlaville, a commune in the department of Meurthe-et-Moselle.
A woman in her sixties and her 4-year-old granddaughter were standing at a bus stop when they were approached by a man demanding they hand over valuables, Le Républicain Lorrain reports.
When the woman refused, the suspect reportedly headbutted her at least three times and grabbed her handbag.
He fled the scene as bystanders attempted to capture him.
Following a short manhunt, authorities were tipped off that a man matching the description of the suspect had been seen breaking into a home in the town.
Officers discovered a window at the rear of the residence had been smashed and ultimately found the suspect hiding behind a couch inside.
He was identified as an Algerian citizen who had arrived illegally to Europe by sea and was living in a squat.
The man was reportedly combative and objected to taking a blood-alcohol test, but later claimed he could not recall committing any crimes due to heavy intake of drugs and alcohol.
He was found to be in possession of assorted jewelry, which he claimed to have purchased in Paris.
The suspect was imprisoned and scheduled to appear in front of a court on Monday.
