A 16-year-old girl has come forward claiming to be attacked by four strangers who laughed while taking advantage of her.
The girl was drunk at the time, and taken to a room near a pizza restaurant where she was attacked by multiple men who “laughed as they put her through the ordeal.” This all took place when she approached them for directions.
Three men and a teenager were arrested and charged with rape for the horrific crime.
“The girl was undoubtedly drunk and was walking the streets alone late at night,” prosecutor Simon Taylor said in court, Kent Online reported.
“The Crown’s case is that her drunkenness, youth and vulnerability would have been [recognized] by the defendants. And it was these factors that they took advantage of in the couple of hours that followed.”
The girl was taken to the home of restaurant owner Tamin Rahani, one of the four men arrested whom she approached at that time.
“Once there she was raped by men on multiple occasions. Through drink, and most likely the trauma of what happened to her, she was unable to provide any detailed descriptions,” Taylor said.
“The girl had found herself in a room of the second floor. In that grubby room, with an uncovered mattress on the floor, multiple males had sex with the teenager. She says that she did not consent. Indeed, you may well conclude that she was too drunk to give any true consent to any sexual intercourse in any event. But what is clear is that each of the men took the opportunity to have a little ‘fun’ at her expense.”
After raping her one of the men took the girl outside where she was “left to roam the streets alone.” She was found “sobbing and distressed” by a woman who took her into her home for safety.
Rehang, Shershah Muslimyar, Rafiullah Hamidy and an unnamed teenager were all arrested and put on trial for the rape.
