Three arrested in Paris on suspicion of cannibalism

Three Africans from Cape Verde were arrested on suspicion of cannibalism in Paris after a brawl resulted in pieces of a man’s ear and lip being bitten off. One suspect and the victim were taken to Montfermeil Hospital.

Published: February 24, 2018, 9:06 am


    All four men involved come from Cape Verde, an island nation off West Africa.

    After biting off the male’s body parts, the three male attackers swallowed parts they had bitten off, it was reported. The victim was able to survive because he had injured one attacker’s leg. He desperately called for help.

    Detectives could not find the pieces of flesh ripped off the man and the victim was left “permanently” mutilated by the attack.

    Police sources told French media they believe the human flesh of their victim was swallowed “intentionally”.

    The incident occurred at around 6pm local time in the French capital when violence erupted during a row. The three suspects started fighting with a fourth individual about money over the weekend.

    A witness living in an apartment block in Hector Berlioz allee, where the incident took place, said they heard “screams” during the fight. One explained: “My wife called me in a panic. She heard shouts and noises from bottles breaking.”

    The immigrant area where the incident happened is located to the east of Paris. Clichy-sous-Bois is a no-go zone and one of the most notorious banlieues.

    In 2005, race riots erupted in Clichy-sous-Bois, which led to a state of emergency being declared in France.

    An investigation has been launched to determine the details. French police were reportedly given extra time to interview the suspects of the cannibalist attack.
