Two French soldiers were arrested in the Turkish tourist town of Marmaris on March 29, accused of assault and theft.

The victim, Koral Kolbüken, filed a complaint against the soldiers – identified only as Cedric R., 28, and Loic R., 29 – who were reportedly intoxicated during the attack.

The soldiers checked into hotels in Marmaris after their French warship anchored off NATO’s Aksaz Naval Base Command and went to Barlar Street on the night of March 29.

The sergeant and the specialised soldier argued with Kolbüken, who was also intoxicated. Kolbüken said he was physically assaulted and alleged that the French soldiers then stole his wallet and started running.

Eyewitnesses called the police and officers patrolling the area caught the suspects before taking them to the police station.

Kolbüken was taken to Marmaris State Hospital and his wallet was later returned.
