Bello Sanchez claims he was raped in Paris and cops did nothing!!
The America’s Next Top Model alum recently revealed to TMZ how he was allegedly sexually assaulted by a man in Le Rouge nightclub’s bathroom stall on January 30. He claims police didn’t even administer a complete rape kit immediately following the assault!
It wasn’t until an advocacy group stepped in three days later after being on the phone with police for nine hours that they completed a full rape kit.
Bello hopes making his rape public will push Paris cops to investigate, as he believes they discriminated against him because of his race and sexuality. He explained in a video:
“Look for that person, Paris is so easy to find someone, all the buildings are the same color, there’s not really a lot of place you can hide at. Why did they not look around in that moment as soon as they came when I told them? Why didn’t they do that? Why didn’t they ask questions to the security guards? They were of no help.”
The model continued:
“If I was a little blonde white girl in Paris saying that happened to me things would have been different. I think my skin-tone, I think my gender, my sexuality, how I look, I think all those things had something to do with why I was not given the proper respect that I deserved. That’s what I believe.”
Hopefully Bello’s case will finally be taken seriously and investigated!!
