Following a gang rape in Hamburg’s municipal park, to which a girl of only 15 years of age fell victim, the police have now identified several suspects. They are 17 to 20 year old men. They had apparently met the young woman by chance and dragged her into a bush.
It was a shocking crime that took place near the festival grounds in mid-September. There, after a private birthday party, the drunk 15-year-old girl had met a group of young men. The girl had partied in the city park with friends and acquaintances. At some point she had lost touch with the group and wandered around alone.The young people she met apparently noticed immediately that the young girl was so drunk that she could not defend herself. One after another, several of the men pulled the young girl into a bush. There they abused the 15-year-old girl. The incident is said to have been recorded on mobile phones. Before fleeing, the perpetrators stole from their victim.Initially five men – among them a 20-year-old Egyptian, a Kuwaiti (19), a Libyan (17) and a 17-year-old migrant born in Hamburg – were identified as suspected perpetrators. They are said to have been belonging to the group that abused the 15-year-old. Later, the police identified two 20-year-old twin brothers. The two are also alleged to have been involved in the rape.
Police officers searched the homes of the accused. Several mobile phones were also seized and their data must now be investigated. The police want to find out who had recorded the crime.
DNA samples were also taken from all accused. This is a common procedure for sexual offences. This way, it can be identified who abused the 15-year-old girl. The suspects were initially released due to lack of grounds for arrest.
