KENT, ENGLAND — Upon stopping at a kebab shop to ask for directions, a lost 16-year-old girl was repeatedly raped by the store’s owner and three others, a prosecutor claims.
The horrible incident was described in a court hearing at Canterbury Crown Court in England. The unnamed teenager had been drinking during a night out with friends and was heading home when she stopped at the late-night restaurant for directions.
She was led by the four suspects to a filthy room above the shop in Ramsgate, Kent, where she was pushed onto a mattress and was overtaken by the group of laughing men.
Prosecutor Simon Taylor stated, “The girl was undoubtedly drunk and was walking the streets alone late at night.”
He continued, “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.”
Taylor said the girl had enough alcohol in her system equivalent to being twice over the legal-driving limit and claims it is clear “each of the men took the opportunity to have a little fun at her expense.”
He said the men raped the teenager on multiple occasions without her consent:
“Through drink, and most likely the trauma of what happened to her, she was unable to provide any detailed descriptions.
“The girl had found herself in a room of the second floor above a takeaway.
“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.”
After the attack, Taylor says the teenager was “escorted” out of the kebab store by one of the men “and left to roam the streets alone.”
She was eventually found “sobbing and distressed” by a woman who took her into her home for safety.
The suspects in the case are and a teenager who cannot be named due to legal reasons. All men deny charges of rape and the trial is continuing.
