Grenoble: a teenager kidnapped and beaten in a cellar because of his sexual orientation

A 15-year-old homosexual young man was kidnapped, then beaten for more than 1.5 hours in a cellar. Five individuals were arrested.

The teenager's ordeal lasted more than an hour and a half. Kidnapped on the public highway in Grenoble, sequestered in a cellar then beaten with an iron bar for many minutes, the 15-year-old young man was also said to have been humiliated and insulted because of his homosexuality, reports Le Figaro.

The five attackers would also have allowed themselves to broadcast extracts of pornographic videos, recovered from the teenager's phone, to distribute them on social networks.

After opening an investigation, the police arrested five minors. One of them would be a cousin of the victim, said to be “hostile” to his sexual orientation.

Four of the suspects were released and placed under judicial supervision on Friday April 12. The fifth was brought before a magistrate for a summons by report.

In December, a series of homophobic ambushes was reported to the police in the Grenoble metropolitan area. Four individuals, aged 16 to 19, including three minors, were arrested and charged. They arranged to meet homosexual men they met on dating platforms to beat them and rob them.
