JAKARTA - A 16-year-old girl was raped by six adolescents on Jl. Perumnas Raya in Duren Sawit, East Jakarta, early on Saturday. Two of the six suspects, also 16 years old, have been arrested by the police.
The head of the women and children's protection unit at the East Jakarta Police Office, Adj. Comr. Endang Sri Lestari, said a medical examination had shown that the victim had been raped. The victim claimed to have been raped by six teenaged boys.
"We are still investigating the case. What is certain is that the victim was raped," Endang said as quoted by tribunnews.com.
The 44-year-old parent of one of the suspects said that his son had not raped the victim but had helped her to go home.
