All three teens were charged with one count of rape. They were booked into the Josefstadt prison, and they were denied bail.

She stopped to use the public bathroom, but was followed inside by the three teenagers. They slammed her head banged against the toilet sink, and took chances raping her.
They covered her mouth to stop her from screaming. When the victim’s friend went into the toilet to check on her, she was lying unconscious on the floor.
