A young schoolboy was involved in a violent gang rape with six older men which was all filmed on a cellphone, a U.K. court has heard.
An investigation was sparked and police launched a major operation after a 20-year-old woman told police she was raped in a house in Southampton, Hampshire, UK, in January, according to mirror.co.uk.
Earlier in the night the woman had been visiting friends before walking through a subway on her way home, according to The New York Post. That’s where she met one of the defendants, Mihaita Palie.
The Mirror reports that she went back to the house, where six others were waiting, and was subjected to a horrifying four-hour ordeal, which was filmed on a cellphone.
“In this room were these defendants and they subsequently subjected her to rape and other sexual abuse as described in the indictment,” said prosecutor Simon Foster.
The court was told that the woman managed to make her way to a public phone after the attack and was able to call police.
“She telephoned the police. They came and found her. She told them about the address in which she had spent a few hours,” Foster added. “The defendants were arrested and she later gave a three-hour account in interview,” he said.
Octavian Militaru, 37, Mihaita Palie, 33, Cosmin Nicut, 20, Radu-Florin Panciuc, 20, Nicolae Ghinea, 21, Ion Matei, 41, and the 13-year-old boy are facing a four-week trial. writes The New York Post.
