A severely drunk illegal migrant from Africa was arrested for beating and gashing a woman with a bottle in France last week, according to reports.
The disturbing incident unfolded at around 6 p.m. last Friday evening in Annemasse, a French city near Geneva, Switzerland.
A woman had just left her job at a pharmacy in the town center and was preparing to step into her car when a man ambushed her and struck her in the head with a beer bottle.
When the bottle broke, the suspect then used it to slash the woman multiple times in the face.
Bystanders eventually managed to subdue the assailant until police arrived.
The suspect was taken into custody in an "advanced state of intoxication," Le Dauphine reports.
He was identified as a 22-year-old citizen of Libya who was illegally present in France and homeless.
During questioning, he claimed to have no memory of the attack.
The victim was treated at hospital for her injuries, including serious facial wounds.
An investigation and legal proceedings are ongoing.
