Teen Girl Raped by 5 Syrian Migrants

Mike Sullivan, The Sun, November 5, 2015

A teenage girl has claimed she was gang raped at a care home by five young Syrian migrants.

The vulnerable 18-year-old victim was subjected to a harrowing five-hour ordeal.

She was attacked last weekend at a supervised care facility in Gillingham, Kent.

The girl was there along with young migrants who were housed under legal obligation by the local authority.

A source said: “She is deeply distressed by the ordeal. It was horrific.

“The victim thinks there were five attackers. The issue is what were they doing there in the first place?

“She is a vulnerable teenager and was under the same roof as some of these suspects.”

Four youths, all claiming to be under 18, have been arrested so far. Two have been charged with rape.

They have appeared at Medway youth court and were remanded in custody to appear at Maidstone crown court on November 20.

The other two arrested have been released without charge.

But sources say police fear the suspects may be older than they say.

One said: “They arrived in the country without documents claiming to be under 18 and from Syria.

“But the reality is they could be older.”
