After innocently visiting a popular pizza shop in a southern Sydney suburb, a young woman was allegedly drugged and gang raped by a man and three teens, it has emerged today.
NSW police are alleging that the males, who were aged 15, 17, 18 and 38 respectively, gave an 18-year-old woman an “unknown substance” in her drink while they were in the takeaway shop in Lugarno.
The woman was initially accompanied to the business by one of the 17-year-olds, before meeting up with the others, who she was not acquainted with.
It is alleged that she was then sexually assaulted ‘a number of times’. She was later dumped in another suburb, where passers-by came to her rescue and alerted police.
The horrifying incident occurred last October, however arrests have only been made now.
All four were charged with aggravated sexual assault in company and refused bail.
The teenagers will appear at a children’s court and the man will appear at Liverpool Local Court today.
