In a case that has made national headlines in France due to the level of brutality, 29-year-old Mégane has now awoken after being raped into a coma with a broomstick by Oumar Ndiaye, who has been dubbed “the monster of Cherbourg” by politician Damien Rieu.

The 29-year-old woman has been in an artificial coma for over a month since the attack on Aug. 4; however, her health still remains “fragile,” according to relatives.

The attack is being described as an “act of torture” by French news outlet Le Figaro, in which the 18-year-old Ndiaye allegedly broke into Mégane’s apartment and began to rape her with a 29-inch-long broomstick, perforating her colon and causing injuries that nearly killed her and left hospital staff treating the woman in tears. Police sources say Mégane had reportedly seen the suspect before but had no interaction with him prior to the rape.

“Mégane came out of a coma a few days ago, but her state of health remains fragile. This is obviously excellent news, but it will take her a long time to recover from all that she has suffered,” said her father, Ludovic, in a press release, which he also read on the radio station HAG’FM, which he founded.

Ludovic is now trying to raise awareness about the French government and its lack of response to the brutal crime, as well as to the fact that the man who allegedly tortured his daughter into a coma had a long criminal record but remained free to attack again.

“(The government) not communicating about this attack gives credit to all these sexual predators and other parasites of society who plague the streets. A wake-up call to the government about the fact that we leave this kind of individual, with a heavy criminal past, in complete freedom, would be welcome. ‘Trust in justice,’ we were told… We only want that,” he said.

As Remix News previously reported, the 18-year-old suspect has a long and violent criminal record consisting of 17 offenses involving physical assault, theft, and the incestuous sexual assault of his younger sister.

The suspect was arrested a week later, with his fingerprints matching those found in the victim’s apartment, and the suspect’s geolocation on his phone also showed that he was in her apartment during the attack. A police source said he had just left a nightclub shortly before the attack in the early morning, with the club located just a few dozen meters from the victim’s residence.

Emergency responders needed psychological care after the attack

After the victim was transported to the hospital, doctors diagnosed her perforation of the colon, small intestine, peritoneum and diaphragm, pneumothorax, rib fractures and a high risk of septic shock. The injuries were so extreme that hospital staff were moved to tears over the attack.

Emergency responders who attended the scene have been offered psychological care and support, with many emergency responders also breaking down in tears at the condition of the victim, France Bleu reported.

“Investigators are shocked, they have never seen so much barbarity,” one source familiar with the case told France Bleu.

No remorse

According to Le Figaro, the suspect expressed “neither empathy nor remorse” for the crime while in police custody. Ndiaye has already been convicted five times in the juvenile court system for offenses against property and violence.

The courts also knew his predilection for committing sexual crimes.

“A procedure for the rape of a minor initiated in 2019 was dismissed by the prosecution in 2020, on the grounds that the offense was not sufficiently characterized. And a sexual assault procedure against his sister is currently under investigation, without it being possible at this stage to determine whether or not these facts have been established,” the Coutances prosecution wrote in a statement.

‘I dream of a France where a young woman is not in danger of ending up in a coma after being robbed, raped and horribly tortured’

As Remix News previously wrote, there was an outpouring of condemnation from conservative politicians following the details of the case:

“Courage to the 29-year-old victim, the umpteenth life shattered by the barbarism that is gaining in France,” tweeted Jordan Bardella, president of the National Rally.

“I dream of a France where a young woman is not in danger of ending up in a coma after being robbed, raped and horribly tortured by Oumar, a repeat offender, in her own home,” wrote former presidential candidate Éric Zemmour.

Zemmour’s remarks were seized upon by left-wing Olivier Faure, the secretary general of the Socialist Party, who insisted that the right-wing politician was being racist by suggesting that it is immigrants who are rapists. He added that it did not matter whether the perpetrator’s name was “Oumar, Francis, Michel, Emile, Guy, or Patrice,” and that it was a heinous act nonetheless.

The father of Megane has also thanked supporters for the “many compassionate messages of support, which give us a lot of strength to get through this ordeal” and for the many donations that have flowed in to help support his daughter. So far, donations have totaled over €105,000.

“The amount will be used to improve Mégane’s daily life once she is able to leave the hospital, but also to cover expenses of all kinds that our daughter will have to face,” wrote Ludovic.

Parallels with other cases

The case also has parallels with numerous other rape cases involving foreigners. In what is one of the most harrowing cases in recent years, 9-year-old Swedish girl Luna was raped and strangled into a coma by a 15-year-old Ethiopian classmate with a history of sexual assault and viewing strangulation pornography on school computers. In a long-form piece, Remix News reported how Luna’s family lives with what they describe as a “black hole with no bottom” over the fact that the once lively girl can no longer speak and remains confined to a wheelchair.
