The 25-year-old content creator was attacked during the night from Sunday to Monday at his parents' home, in Seine-et-Marne, by three men.


It took him a whole day before he spoke.

The influencer Just Riadh spoke in a story on his Instagram account Monday evening, after having been the victim the previous night of a violent armed burglary at his parents' home, in Magny-le-Hongre in Seine-et- Marl.

“We are doing well, despite the anger and disgust that I feel, feelings that I had never experienced with such force,” he wrote, still stunned, to his approximately five million subscribers, that he thanked for the “many messages of support”.

The 25-year-old young man was alongside his partner and his brother when he was attacked by three criminals armed with knives in the middle of the night.

They entered the home through the French window of the living room of the property, around 2 a.m.

The influencer, who made himself known through humorous videos published online, explained to police officers from the Anti-Crime Brigade that he had been threatened with a blade placed under his throat.

The trio of thieves made off with two Rolex watches and three mobile phones, all worth 20,000 euros, as well as 1,000 euros in cash.

“I am a human being before being a content creator”

“Trials can transform a person, often irreversibly.

This kind of moment tests our ability to stay true to who we are,” Just Riadh also declared Monday evening on his Instagram account.

“I have so much hatred against the three people responsible for this act, and also against the one who chose to make this story public, a double punishment,” he also lambasted.

“Some will say it’s the price of notoriety or whatever, but nothing can justify or mitigate that.

I am a human being before being a content creator,” continued the influencer, who participated in several shows, including Beijing Express on M 6, and who was spotted by the cinema, notably starring in 2023 in the film “Under the Stars”.

“You will neither see me cry nor victimize myself,” he added, ensuring that he did not react to his story “to draw attention” to himself but only to not “let others speak for me ".

The Chessy urban police station was investigated for robbery in a meeting at gunpoint.

Home-jackings, these violent burglaries with the victims present at the home, have increased in recent months against celebrities living in the Paris region: the singer Vitaa, the presenters Nikos Aliagas and Bruno Guillon, PSG players as well as the chef Jean-François Piège were notably victims.

From January to November 2023, the police headquarters recorded a total of 288 home-jackings in Paris and its immediate suburbs, or 49 fewer than over the same period in 2022. But celebrities seem to be increasingly targeted.
