Three Eritrean migrants are under arrest for allegedly raping a teenage girl and assaulting her boyfriend near the Tel Aviv Central Bus Station late last month, police revealed Thursday after a media ban on the case was lifted.
According to police, the couple had left a night club on Shivat Tzion Street in south Tel Aviv when they were set upon by three men. The men dragged them behind a building and two proceeded to rape the girl while her boyfriend was held down. The suspects also stole cell phones, a gold necklace and cash before fleeing the scene. They did not use weapons in the attacks.
The male victim was not seriously injured. Both of the victims are under 18. Two of the suspects are aged 18 and the third is 24-years-old.
