Group of nine men gang rape five-year-old girl
A five-year-old boy has allegedly been gang-raped by a group of children – all aged under 13 – on a remote beach in an Aboriginal community in Far North Queensland.
The attack unfolded at Napranum, on the north-west coast of Cape York in Queensland on July 1, police allege.
The four boys accused of the rape have been taken into custody, while the 800-strong community has banned them from returning to the town, The Australian reported.
The alleged attack was so violent the five-year-old required emergency medical treatment and was airlifted to Cairns Hospital, some 800km away.
Community members said the disturbing allegations have torn several families apart and reopened wounds from a shocking sex crime that happened 15 years earlier.
“There are big arguments about how this happened,” a source told paper.
“It is creating big problems in the town. It is not the first time something like this has happened.”
The neighbouring community of Aurukun, about 40km south of Napranum, was at the centre of nationwide outrage in 2006 when a 10-year-old girl was gang-raped by nine men aged between 13 and 25.
The young girl was born to an alcohol-dependent mother and suffered from a mild intellectual disability.
Although the men all pleaded guilty to a litany of sexual offences, the judge spared the perpetrators jail time, noting the victim ‘probably agreed’ to have sex with them.
She ruled the men were also victims themselves after growing up deprived and subjected to physical and sexual abuse at the hands of others in their community.
No convictions were recorded in the horrifying case, sparking fury across Australia.
