Teen kidnapped, beaten and thrown into the Seine in a suburb of Paris

An 18-year-old young man was kidnapped, beaten and thrown into the Seine after being lured to an area in a Paris suburb by his girlfriend’s brother.

The incident occurred around 5:30 p.m. last Thursday in the town of Gennevilliers in the Paris suburb of Hauts-de-Seine. The teen and his friend were attacked after trying to meet a 15-year-old girl they saw on social media network Snapchat.

About six men, including the 15-year-old girl’s brother, attacked the couple, with the group grabbing the 18-year-old and driving him into a car, where they took him to another location near the Seine where the victim was stripped naked and thrown into the icy river, reports CNews.

According to the broadcaster, the entire incident was also filmed by the attackers in an attempt to humiliate the teen before violently attacking him a second time.

After the attackers fled the area, the victim was able to go to a nearby pharmacy and call the police, who took him to a nearby hospital. Police said at the time that they were still identifying the attackers.

CNews journalist Amaury Bucco revealed more details about the attackers on Twitter, stating that the brother of the girl involved was an 18-year-old Seïd B. and that the attack may have been honour-related.

The other members of the group who attacked the teen are also believed to be known to police, Bucco said, reporting on Sunday that at least four people have been arrested in connection with the attack thanks to the geolocation of the victim’s phone. which they stole.

The incident mirrors another case in 2021 that also took place in the suburbs of Paris in the infamous Seine-Saint-Denis area, where a 17-year-old was kidnapped and tortured after reporting several local drug dealers to the police.

Police later arrested four men aged 19 to 21 after they attempted to extort €5,000 from the victim and his mother.
