Aminata Diallo arrested by police for an attack on PSG team mate
Following an attack on a PSG women’s team mate, Aminata Diallo was arrested by police today. Aminata is accused of hiring masked men to hurt Kheira Hamraoui in order for her to have playing time. Aminata was born to Guinean parents in France.
Diallo was detained after her teammate Kheira Hamraoui was taken from her car and attacked with iron rods by two masked men; she required stitches in her legs and wrists.
On November 4, Diallo’s teammate and fellow midfielder Kheira Hamraoui was taken from a car and assaulted by two masked men, according to L’Équipe.
As the automobile neared Hamraoui’s house, she was taken out by two men wearing masks, one of whom assaulted her, pounding her legs with iron bars before fleeing. The incident lasted many minutes, and Hamraoui required stitches to her legs and hands, forcing her to miss a match against Real Madrid in which Diallo was playing.
Both players are vying for the same position for their respective clubs and countries.
The brutal assault, which occurred after an evening event at a restaurant in the Bois de Boulogne, west of Paris, is being investigated by police.
All the PSG women players and staff had been at the event. According to the public news channel France TV Info, after the event, Diallo had driven Hamraoui and another player home.
PSG have now released a statement
“Paris St-Germain can confirm that Aminata Diallo was taken into custody this morning by the Versailles Regional Police Service as part of the proceedings opened following an attack on the club’s players,” PSG said on their website.
