A TRIO of teenagers has been arrested for gang-raping a 15-year-old girl after she was lured into a garage by a schoolfriend she trusted.
The three boys aged 14 to 17 took turns to rape the schoolgirl after one of them tricked her into going into the garage by claiming he wanted to show off his new motorbike, it is alleged.
The terrified girl was only released after a neighbour appeared at the garage, ending the horrific ordeal.
The boys carried out “all sorts of abuses”, the girl’s heartbroken dad told local media Ribera Express, as her parents issued a warning to other youngsters.
Our daughter cries every two to three hours
“Our daughter cries every two to three hours and has not been able to sleep since Saturday when she remembers the unfortunate events,” said her parents, adding others should not “trust anyone even though they are well known”.
At least two of the teens who allegedly carried out the attack are classmates of the girl, who cannot be named for legal reasons.
The teenager was lured to the garage in the small town of Alzira in Spain’s Valencia region by the group of boys before the nightmare attack at around 9.30pm on January 16.
They had originally told her they would walk her home to meet the area’s 10pm Covid curfew, before convincing the unsuspecting girl to go into the garage to look at the new motorbike, reported local media.
Only after she was released and made it back home at about 10.30pm, was the young girl able to raise the alarm.
Her parents took her to hospital and called police to report the horrendous assault.
The Spanish National Police detained the suspects and placed them in the custody of the Juvenile Prosecutor’s Office in Valencia.
Authorities have decided to keep the teens in custody at a closed centre while investigations are continuing, according to local reports.
The young girl is being supported by psychologists from her high school, as well as local social services, following the traumatic experience.
The alleged gang-rape comes after four adult men were arrested in Valencia for gang-raping a 14-year-old girl in September.
In March, the Spanish government proposed new legislation toughening up the law on rape, to strengthen women’s rights.
