Suspects in alleged gang rape to remain in custody

May 2, 2012 16:59

The Jerusalem District Court ruled on Wednesday to delete an appeal by two suspects arrested on Tuesday on suspicion of gang raping an 18-year-old high school student after a high school graduation party in a villa close to Jerusalem.

Police arrested four men in total, and on Tuesday the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court ruled to extend their remand until Thursday while a police investigation continues.

The two men in court today, one a security guard and the second a pool lifeguard, were both paid workers at the party, and were appealing against a magistrate's court ruling to extend their remand.

All four deny the suspicions against them.
