Nine minors are suspected of having organized ambushes via the Coco site. Eight victims were trapped, attacked and robbed.

Nine minors were indicted last Thursday in a new case of violent attacks, linked to the Coco site, BFMTV learned from a Source close to the investigation, confirming information from Le Parisien.

These individuals are suspected of having set traps for several people between October 2023 and May 2024, through the Coco website. The dating site, where child pornography content circulates, is regularly cited in violent news stories. The site is also known to be the starting point for ambushes against homosexual people.

In this case, eight victims were identified. These are men, aged 23 to 47, who thought they had an appointment with an escort girl by connecting to the site, and who upon arriving at the scene were attacked and robbed (telephones, money , cars….).

An investigation opened for “theft with violence in a meeting”

The first complaint was filed last October, then another shortly after. Investigators quickly realized that they were dealing with the same team. An investigation was then opened by the Bobigny public prosecutor’s office for “violent theft during a meeting”.

Thanks to the investigations of the technical and scientific police and with telephone elements, the police traced the nine minors, all residents of Montreuil.

They were arrested and placed in GAV on Tuesday, before being indicted on Thursday, after being presented to a children’s judge. Most have been placed under judicial supervision, at least one of them has an educational measure.
