However, hundreds of peaceful protests populated throughout Paris, with demonstrators toting the rally cray #JusticeForTheo on banners and posters.

The young man identified only as Théo, was walking with his headphones on when he was approached by four officers on February 2 near his housing estate in Aulnay-sous-Bois, French outlet BFM reports.

“When I realized how violent their tone was, I said to myself ‘they seem pretty serious.’ So I stood against the wall, and then, one of the policemen beat me,” he said during his interview with the television station.

“I saw one of them take his baton and stick it into my bum. As soon as he did that, I fell on my belly. I felt weak. It was as if my body had given up on me. Then, they handcuffed me,” he said.

Théo remains in critical condition and while doctors have not determined the extent of the damage, the suggest incontinence, BFM reports.

The four officers involved in the incident were charged with aggravated assault and one officer was charged with rape according to the Interior Ministry. The involved officers are suspended until an internal review on the use of excessive force is completed.

After a hospital visit with President Francois-Hollande, Théo called for calm from his hospital bed. “I call to calm my city because I love it very much. Violence is not the way to support me. Justice will do its job,” he said.
