Serious trouble for Ishak Belfodil, former striker of Bologna, Parma, Inter and Livorno among others. The Algerian footballer was arrested by the police on charges of assaulting his 15-year-old little sister. According to reports from Le Parisien, citing police sources, the 31-year-old was heard by the investigators after an argument with his sister who showed signs of strangulation. Belfodil allegedly found himself on vacation at the family home near Paris and argued with her sister before coming to blows with her and attempting to strangle her.
After contacting the police on Sunday evening, the latter has still not filed a complaint. Investigations are still ongoing to shed light on what happened. The Versailles prosecutor’s office has 48 hours to decide what to do with him and how to proceed from a judicial point of view.
