Video footage of a French police officer sexually assaulting a woman by inappropriately frisking her surfaced late Thursday.
The footage shared by Yassine Bouzrou, a criminal lawyer working in Paris, shows the male officer clearly crossing the line and overtly groping the woman's breasts under the pretense of frisking her.

“This is not frisking, but a sexual assault,” Bouzrou said in the tweet that accompanied the undated video reportedly taken in Nice's Les Moulins district.
“Few are lucky enough to have a video,” he added, referring to the footage proving the assault.
