Two British girls who were gang-raped by a group of men at a party in Italy said they were targeted because they wanted to dance on the last night of their holiday – and claim the suspects caught the attack on video, according to a report.
The 15-year-olds were reportedly punched, kicked and raped by eight men who crashed the party they attended in the Basilicata province of Matera in southern Italy early last week.
Four men — Michele Masiello, 23, Alberto Lopatriello, 22, Alessandro Zuccaro, 21, and Giuseppe Gargano, 19 – have been arrested and are being held in jail, The Sun reported. All four deny charges of sexual assault and claim the girls consented.
Three others are on bail and another suspect is being sought in the attack at a villa in Marconia di Pisticci, officials said, according the news outlet.
