British girls claim assailants gang-raped in Italy: report

According to a report, two British girls, who were gang-raped by a group of men at a party in Italy, were targeted as they wanted to dance on the last night of their vacation and the suspects caught the attack on video.

The 15-year-old children were allegedly punched, beaten and raped by eight people who took part in Basilicata province in Matera, southern Italy, early last year.

The Sun reported that four men – Michele Massiello, 23, Alberto Lopatralio, 22, Alessandro Zuccaro, 21 and Giuseppa Gargano, 19 – have been arrested and are being held in jail. All four deny allegations of sexual harassment and claim consent to the girls.

According to the news outlet, officials said three other people are out on bail and another suspect is wanted in an attack at a villa in Marconia Pi Pisiski.

The Rapple cited national daily La Repubblica as Michel Leon and Egidio Andrieli – better known as Red Michael and Mayu des, have also been named as suspects.

Reportedly, it was not clear whether the singers were believed to be directly involved in the attack.

In their latest song “Conto Cash”, which translates to “I count my cash”, they rap: “I count money in my Mercedes, on two B-boards, we go for a ride. ”

“These two b-s are undone in my belt,” he sings.

The Sun reported that the girls, who have not been identified for legal reasons – claim they were drugged before being raped on camera in the bushes outside the villa for 15 minutes.

“It was to be the last evening on September 6, when we spent time at Pistik. We should have left earlier but at the last moment we changed the plan, ”said one of the girls, the outlet quoted La Repubblica.

“A local friend of ours came to pick us up at 11:30 am to go to a party in the villa with a large garden, at the Marconia di Pistiki. I never went, ”she said.

One of the girls told investigators that she felt “strange and very confused” after taking a ginger and lemon sip.

He said, “I didn’t take any drugs intentionally, but I think someone put something in my other drink because I felt weird after drinking it.”

The girls said that the group of men then took them out and raped them.

One of the girls said, “He took me to the back of the house and I saw his friends behind us as well.”


“I tried to go back to the party, but I remember that they started kissing and touching me, pushing me back in the direction,” he continued. “I don’t know what my friend was doing but I remember she was with a boy too.”

The girl said: “They pushed me towards a car. There were at least five of them. The area was bad. They hit me and in return, took advantage of me.

“I told them to stop. I was screaming in English let me go. He took off his trousers and I tried to defend myself by cutting off one’s penis, “she said.

“A boy tried to record the entire scene with the phone, but I can’t tell if he managed to do so,” the teenager allegedly added.

Surveillance footage released by the officers showed the suspects walking towards the grounds and shortly after they were trying to leave the villa.

The organizer of the party said that an invitation was posted on Facebook, which is why many people showed up.

“We were wrong to publish the invitation on Facebook and send it to some WhatsApp groups, but we could not imagine [what happened], “The organizer said, according to Surya.

“The party was going well until some time ago, I saw pistic boys coming. Everyone knows them here, they are a bit degenerate, even though some of them come from good families, ”he said.

“When I saw them coming, I wondered what they were doing here. But then they disappeared. “While we were serving the cake, the uncle of one of the British girls arrived and started talking. It was only after this that we understood what had happened. ”

The girls were examined at the Madonna della Grazi Hospital in Matera.

According to The Sun, the uncle of one of the girls was told by guests “don’t call the police or you’ll ruin the party.”

In an interview with local media, the father of one of the victims said: “Justice still needs to be done because not all of them have been identified who were responsible.”
