Policeman charged with rape after film emerges showing a black youth being arrested & ‘sexually assaulted with a truncheon’ in Paris suburb

Rioting has broken out on a tinderbox French council estate after a policeman was accused of sexually assaulting a black youth worker with a truncheon.

Amateur video posted online by the BFM news channel shows the 22-year-old, who has been identified as ‘Theo’ by protesters, being arrested last Thursday.

Now one of four officers involved in the incident has been charged with rape on the so-called ‘3000 estate’ in Aulnay-sous-Bois, in the north east suburbs of Paris.
