A young woman has lived through a real nightmare. Members of her family kidnapped her and assaulted her in Brest.
A 22-year-old woman from Brest was reportedly kidnapped and abused by his mother and brother. The latter would not have accepted the relationship of their daughter and their sister with the man with whom she had just married who would belong to the community of Travelers. They would then have removed and held captive the latter from September 28 to 29. They would also have him shaved head. The victim managed to contact friends on social networks to alert them to his situation. They then notified the police.
The 49-year-old mother and 27-year-old son were arrested and later taken into custody. During the hearings, they both denied the facts which he is accused of. They were placed in custody. The mother and son were to appear immediately, this Tuesday, October 4, at the Brest Criminal Court. The mother of the family was not present in court, as reported by the site Actu.fr, hospitalized in the psychiatric hospital of Bohars. The victim’s brother, on the other hand, was present at the bar.
