An adult illegal migrant with a criminal history told authorities he was a minor when he was arrested for a series of sex attacks on underage victims in Paris last week, according to reports.
The rampage began at around 7 a.m. on Friday in the 15th arrondissement of France’s capital city.
An 18-year-old male was on his way to school when the suspect accosted him on rue de Lourmel.
“This man told the high school student that he needed help finding his way. He then dragged him into a corner, then exhibited a six-inch metal hook to threaten him, all the while saying he also had a gun,” a police source told Actu 17.
The suspect then reached inside the victim’s underwear and proceeded to sexually assault him before the student could escape and alert police, who were unable to locate the predator.
At around 7:45 a.m., a suspect with the same description was reported for prowling around St. Elizabeth's School.
“He tried to approach several minor students and tried to snatch the bag of a 15-year-old teenager, but finally gave up when several people witnessed the scene,” the source said.
Half an hour later, the suspect struck again, this time dragging a 16-year-old boy off the street and into a secluded area.
He forced the student to touch him sexually while brandishing the hook and offering the child cocaine.
The victim managed to break free, and the suspect fled.
The next day, transport police observed a suspicious man at Gare du Nord station.
“He had a strange attitude and watched the dozing passengers waiting for their train,” the source explained.
Officers began following the African and reportedly watched him try to attack at least three underage victims on their way to school.
Finally, when the suspect sexually assaulted a young man aboard a train, officers arrested him in the act.
Investigators later determined he was the same suspect implicated in the previous day’s attacks.
“The examinations showed that he had indeed consumed cocaine recently,” the source said.
“He maintained that he was a 16-year-old Moroccan minor, but the investigators ended up identifying him as a 24-year-old Algerian, since he was already known to their services.”
The Algerian was quickly sentenced to four years in prison, expulsion from France, and a ten-year ban from entering the country.
