A five-year-old boy has allegedly been gang raped by a group of children – all aged under 13 – on a remote beach in an Aboriginal community in Far North Queensland, Austrailia.
The attack unfolded at Napranum, on the north-west coast of Cape York in Queensland on July 1, police allege.
The four boys accused of the rape have been taken into custody, while the 800-strong community has banned them from returning to the town, The Australian reported.
The five year old was brutally and violently gang raped, he required emergency medical treatment and was airlifted to Cairns Hospital, some 800km away.
According to community members a similar crime like this happened 15 years earlier.
‘There are big arguments about how this happened,’ one local said.
‘It is creating big problems in the town. It is not the first time something like this has happened.’
