Essonne: arrested for an attempted break-in, the suspect had been wanted for two years for a rape

It is a stroke of fate that may allow a 2-year-old case to be closed. Wanted for a rape committed in 2022 on a teenager in Hérault, a 27-year-old man was arrested 700 km away, in Essonne, during a police intervention for an attempted break-in.

The suspect was arrested on the night of Saturday 6 to Sunday 7 July. Around 4am, in Savigny-sur-Orge, the national police received an alert: the alarm of a house had just sounded, signalling an attempted break-in in progress.

On arriving at the scene, the Juvisy-sur-Orge police station staff noted the facts and began searching for the suspect, who had apparently left the scene. A man was discovered near the house. He was carrying a screwdriver. Questioned immediately about his presence in the area, this 27-year-old suspect, who was drunk, admitted to having entered the courtyard of the house, before quickly leaving the scene when the alarm sounded…

A rape in August 2022

The case does not end there. When checking his identity, the police found that the young man was the subject of a search warrant. In fact, his name appeared in the context of proceedings opened for rape of a minor in Lodève (34).

On August 30, 2022, a teenager, then aged 15, was the victim of sexual abuse. Since then, the Hérault gendarmes in charge of the case had identified a suspect, homeless and of Tunisian nationality. The 27-year-old man had never been able to be arrested and questioned on these facts of rape. Until this weekend and his unexpected arrest in Essonne.

Taken to the premises of the Juvisy police station to be placed in police custody, the suspect, subject to an OQTF (obligation to leave French territory), was then transferred to an administrative detention center (CRA). He should be quickly repatriated to Hérault where the gendarmes of the Lodève research brigade are waiting for him.
