In Oostende, Belgium an 18-year-old girl was raped on the beach this Wednesday. A friend of the girl had to watch while two of the men raped the 18-year-old victim.
The boy and girl are not a couple but went to a high school gala together. The gala took place in Oostende’s casino. When they went to the beach at night to get some fresh air, three men of foreign origin. started talking to them. At first it seemed like it was a robbery. At one point the boy was threatened with a knife and the men forced him to watch while two men raped the girl. Both victims their police statements tell the same story.
The whole attack lasted for about twenty minutes. The three men then fled away and are still not found. The two teens immediately went to the police station and filed a complaint. No one has been arrested yet, but the research is going on. The girl has been taken to hospital for an investigation into sexual aggression, police say.
The Belgian police registered a total of 2,883 rape or rape attempts in 2014. That’s almost 8 rapes a day. Perhaps even an underestimation, because many victims do not report the crime. Back in 2016 an Afghan male refugee raped an female worker at Belgian asylum center.
