A group of 11 men, aged between 18 and 30, allegedly assaulted a teenage girl as she walked home, dragged her into a wooded area and raped her for several hours.
11 gang rapists claim they had to rape teenage girl because of her ‘demand’
A group of 11 men, most of whom are from Syria and aged between 18 and 30, dragged the weakened young girl to a nearby wooded area and took turns raping her repeatedly for several hours. After they were captured, however, they had a deeply disturbing excuse for investigators.
According to the Daily Mail, the “ringleader” of the gang rapists, identified as Majd H., 23, claims that the 11 men only raped the girl because she “demanded” sex with the entire group.
Defense lawyer Joerg Ritzel reiterated his client’s accusation, claiming that the victim had consensual sex with the 11 suspects, who include 8 Syrians, an Iraqi, an Algerian and a German national.
The suspects were reportedly so aggressive that 20 police officers were brought in to drag the men to the courthouse benches as they resisted.
According to reports, one of the men raised his middle finger toward the courtroom and shouted, “Whoever photographs me is going to hell!” Perhaps the most disturbing aspect of the case is that, despite his age, Majd is being tried as a juvenile, reports Breitbart .
Although the victim was brave enough to face her attackers in court, she broke down crying and wept throughout the hearing. Still, defense attorneys repeatedly accused her of seducing men and consensually engaging in group sex.
Majd has been accused of luring the drunken woman outside with the promise of showing her a unique tattoo on his thigh. When she tried to return to the club, he allegedly grabbed her from behind and ripped off her skirt and panties before raping her.
The men were identified through DNA samples and corroborating testimonies from nightclub patrons and staff members. These accounts soon led to the arrest of the 11 suspects and identified Majd as the ringleader.
Majd is currently on trial as a juvenile for the crimes of rape and instigating the gang rape of a teenage girl. Sadly, he is likely to receive only a slap on the wrist like many others before him.
