The events took place on Sunday morning, Berthe, a district of La Seyne-sur-Mer, in the Var.
At around 8: 30am, a woman was walking quietly to his dog, near the tower of the Handles, when she was approached by an individual.
This last made him a dustpan, dropping the forties to the ground.
He then gagged her mouth with a hand, before raping her in him introducing his fingers in her vagina with the other.
The police arrived on the scene, arrested the suspect and placed him in custody.
It has been referred on Tuesday to the court of Toulon in view of a probable indictment.
