(Scroll down for video) Police were called to a school after a monkey attacked kids while looking for chocolate.

Police in France, had to use a Taser to catch the monkey that had been attacking children to steal their candy and chocolate.

Police suspect that the monkey has been someone’s pet and was then abandoned in the city. The one-year-old monkey roamed the streets and soon found new friends – local neighborhood children. They fed the monkey Kinder chocolates.

The chocolate diet left the monkey aggressive while looking for its next fix. One day, the animal attacked and scratched some children at an elementary school, causing police to hunt for the monkey.

The animal managed to evade police for a few weeks, before it was finally caught.

“We were given the location, but by the time we got there the monkey had escaped,” a police spokesperson said.

On Monday, officials finally managed to spot the monkey and used a Taser to get the animal. It was placed in a cage and taken to the police station, where it was fed bananas and other treats.

The monkey was checked by a veterinarian before being taken to a local zoo. Police posted photos of the monkey after it was arrested and taken into their custody.
