A Jewish teen and her parents reported the rape to the French police (illustrative).

Wednesday, 19 June 2024 | Three boys ages 12 to 14 were arrested on suspicion of the anti-Semitic rape of a 12-year-old girl, French media reported on Tuesday evening. One issue behind the attack appears to be that the girl hid the fact that she was Jewish from a former boyfriend.

The girl and her parents arrived at a police station in the Hauts-de-Seine district, which includes the western suburbs of Paris, to file a complaint about the alleged rape, the daily LeParisien reported. The girl claimed that she was raped in an abandoned hangar during the weekend.

According to the complaint, the three boys beat the girl and shouted anti-Semitic epithets about her religion and then raped her. A medical examination confirmed that she had been raped.

According to the report in Le Parisien, the girl’s ex-boyfriend accused her of hiding from him that she was Jewish. In addition, anti-Semitic comments and images, including a burnt Israeli flag, were found by the investigators on the smartphone of one of the suspects. One of the boys said that the girl spoke out against the Palestinians.

The three are suspected of the crimes of rape under aggravated circumstances, sexual assault under aggravated circumstances and, possibly, threatening to kill their victim. Media in France reported that at least one of the boys confessed to the attack.
