A young woman is angry after being attacked by a group of teen girls for wearing a bikini in a public park, police in France said following the arrests of the suspects.
21-year-old Angelique Sloss of Reims, was beaten by the group of young women as she was sunbathing with two of her friends.
According to the police investigation, the attack took place on Wednesday at the Parc Leo-Lagrange. All five girls involved in the attack were arrested and three were named.
Ines Nouri, Zohra Karim, and Hadoune Tadjouri, were charged with assault.
The mayor of Reims, warned people not to jump to conclusions and assume that the attack was motivated by religion despite the fact that the suspect screamed that Sloss was immoral for wearing a bikini in public.
At this point, police believe that religion did not play a role in the attack, saying that the fight was gang related. Passersby managed to stop the assault, but Sloss still suffered severe bruising.
