Rabat – Saad Lamjarred, sensational Moroccan singer and actor, is now being sought after for accusations of “sexual assault and violence” towards a Brooklyn woman, according to New York Daily News.
The alleged victim’s name has been withheld due to the nature of the alleged crime. The victim claims that she was allegedly sexually assaulted and beaten in a Brooklyn apartment by Lamjarred, in 2010.
According to the authorities, the victim has filed a report with the police on the alleged rape and beating. Rifat Harb, the alleged victim’s attorney claims that the Moroccan singer was “arrested and indicted, and after posting bail, immediately fled the country, and has not returned since.”
The alleged victim has now used Lamjarred’s status as an alleged fugitive to file a lawsuit against him for monetary damages. She is suing him for “sexual battery and intentional infliction for emotional distress,” according to the lawsuit.
“No one could find him to serve him, the district attorney’s office couldn’t even find him. He should be easy to arrest outside of Morocco, he’s making the rounds in Europe from Milan to Germany now, he can be easily served,” said Harb.
Morocco World News attempted to obtain a statement from the singer or his manager, but we received no answer.
According to a source contacted by Morocco World News, following his arrest, Moroccan business owner, Sherif Adlouni obtained him a lawyer and mobilized the Moroccan community in order to collect the needed money to bail him out.
Before rising to fame upon his return to Morocco, Lamjarrad used to sing in a number of lounges and Moroccan restaurants, such as Tagine, near the Times Square area.
