According to the indictment, the suspects, 22 year-old Lior Barca from Bat Yam, 20-year-old Semion Estarkhan from Tel Aviv and 20-year-old Paez Delek from Tel Aviv served free alcohol to the underage girls at the club after operating hours and later took advantage of there intoxication, raping them and filming the proceedings on a cellular phone.

The suspects then allegedly carried the girls out of the club and left them passed out on the steps of a building across the street.
