A young woman was sexually assaulted in Montpellier on Saturday, near the train station.
Two men were said to be particularly insistent after asking him for his Snapchat profile.
One of them then allegedly forced her to kiss him and tried to touch his chest.
The young woman managed to flee before alerting municipal police officers who were nearby.
With an accurate description, they challenged the duo a little further a few moments later.
The man suspected of having committed sexual assault has been arrested.
