PSG defender Hakimi charged with raping 24-year-old woman
Achraf Hakimi has been charged with rape, French prosecutors report. The Paris Saint-Germain Moroccan defender is accused by a 24-year-old woman of raping her at his home in a Paris suburb.
Hakimi was reportedly heard by detectives on Thursday and then charged by an investigating judge and placed under judicial supervision.
The alleged victim reported to police last weekend. According to the woman, contact between her and Hakimi got out of hand at the soccer player’s home. She says she eventually managed to flee the house.
The right-back is a regular in the Moroccan national team, which surprisingly reached the semifinals at the World Cup. In it, France was too strong.
The footballer appeared at the gala of soccer federation FIFA on Monday night, where he was chosen in the best team in the world.
Hakimi trains with PSG
“We support our player and have confidence in the operation of the court,” reported Paris Saint-Germain. Hakimi trained with the group on Friday. Coach Christophe Galtier indicated at the press conference that he would not comment on the matter.
