Paris Saint-Germain's right-back Achraf Hakimi is at the center of a rape investigation, according to a report by Le Parisien. The 24-year-old Moroccan national team player is accused of raping a 24-year-old woman at his home in the suburbs of Paris on February 25th, leading to the initiation of an investigation by the French prosecutors.
Alleged Incident Report Filed with Police
The unnamed accuser reported the alleged incident to the police station on Sunday but declined to press charges. However, the prosecution took over the case and is now investigating the matter.
The victim and Hakimi had been communicating through Instagram since mid-January, leading to her visit to the player's house in Boulogne on February 25th, where the alleged rape took place.
Victim's Account of the Incident
According to the victim's account, after arriving at Hakimi's home, the football star began kissing her and lifted her clothes, despite her protests.
She claims that he then digitally penetrated her without consent. The victim was able to escape by kicking him away and sending a text message to a friend, who then came to pick her up.
Hakimi's Personal Life
Hakimi's wife, actress Hiba Abouk, is currently on vacation in Dubai with their two young sons.
The couple met in 2018 when Hakimi was playing for Dortmund, and they got married in a secret wedding in 2020. Abouk is twelve years older than Hakimi and shares a similar background, being born in Madrid to Tunisian parents.
She rose to fame with her performance in the Spanish crime drama "El Principe".
Appearance at the FIFA "The Best" Award
Interestingly, Hakimi appeared at the FIFA "The Best" award ceremony, which was held in Paris on the same day as the reported incident.
He was part of the Moroccan national team that won fourth place at the World Cup in Qatar. This story is still developing, and it remains to be seen what the outcome of the investigation will be. However, the accusations against Hakimi have sent shockwaves through the football world and beyond.
