An adult male Afghan migrant is facing only a two-year prison sentence for allegedly luring a five-year-old girl into his bed and sexually abusing her.

The abuse is said to have occurred during April of 2018 when the five-year-old girl and her mother were staying at an apartment shared with three other migrants, two Afghans and a Sudanese national, in the commune of Avranches in Normandy, French newspaper La Manche Libre reports. The mother of the child, who usually slept on the floor of the apartment with her daughter, was woken up at about 4 am when she heard the voice of her Afghan flatmate and realised that her 5-year-old daughter was in the same bed as him.

The 5-year-old girl then told her mother that the man had tried to make her touch his genitals. The mother then relayed news of the incident to neighbors who then contacted the police. Shortly after, the perpetrator was arrested. When the police interviewed the victim, she told them that the Afghan mad had put his hand down her underwear before asking her to touch his “hard sausage”. The defendant has denied the claims, insisting that the 5-year-old girl had been the one to initiate sexual contact with him.

The case’s judgment is expected on November 27th. Since the peak of the migrant crisis in 2015-2016, incidents such as this one have become more common. In June, a migrant who claims to be 17-years-old was accused of sexually abusing a girl much younger than himself. When confronted about it, the migrant is said to have admitted to forcing the young girl to have sex with him but that he believed he had done nothing wrong because no one in Sweden had informed him about the country’s laws and norms.
